People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person...

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend and they are.

They are there for a reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.

Sometimes they walk away.

Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Sometimes people come to your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.

They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy

BELIEVE it, it is REAL. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Your welcome, so very much. Thank you for being apart of my life, even if it is only on this here sight. I'm sure we will both get some more laughs and smiles before the reason, season, or lifetime is through.

with these things it is difficult, until time has passed, to see it for what it was.

Thank you Purry.
Very timely!
Exactly 1 month ago today I lost a very special friend. She was a answer to my prayer and I to hers!
There was a reason. But " Sometimes they die."! We all die.
We both believed in eternal life. We shall meet again.
Now life goes on and prayers will be answered again.

Sometimes we wonder why we provide a very good answer.

I've always been one to say everything happens for a reason.....sometimes, we may not know what that reason is...but there is *always* a reason.

Your words are true, people come into our lives with many different reasons and needs. Some stay, some go, some hover on the brink and you're really not sure why.

Thank you for this post, it really has me thinking.

An interesting take on it, yet the longer I live, the more I notice coincidences that seem to work that way.

Oh Purry, that is scrumptious. Just makes every memory a little more special and a chance to reflect on every new person with a little more relish. Thanks and hugs.

Sometimes it takes years for us to realize the lessons that those that were with us for such a short time, taught us.
Hold your friends close to your heart.

Purry - You were right! I love what you wrote! I have read something similar before, though not so detailed. I definately believe it, and appreciate all of my Reasons, Seasons, and Lifetimes!
