People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, or to provide you with guidance and support... to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the 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 or out 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 it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may 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 in it because it is real. But, only for a SEASON. And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall, the season eventually ends.
LIFETIME relationships teach you a lifetime of lessons; Those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people anyway, 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. Some people come into our lives and quickly go, some people become friends and stay awhile leaving beautiful footprints in our hearts and we are never quite the same because we have made a good friend!
how much do you love that???
i stole it from my sister's best friend's blog.. and i identified with it.. and felt every word that was written..
thanks for letting me snag it joh.. even though i didn't really wait for a response. :P
although, it kind of puts my last post into perspective.. maybe i was just supposed to see that she was doing fine and she's got a family and she's healthy and doing well. i guess i'll just have to believe that.. even though reason and season friends are "gone" from your life.. you don't ever really forget them..
everything that happens in life will invariably leave some sort of imprint on you.. believe me i know.. but.. it's how you come out of the situation that matters and who you have with you at the end of it that will define, reason, season or lifetime...
i love all my girls!! BCB for life! bwahahahaha..
