Reason, Season and Lifetime

Secret Garden

People always come into your life

for a reason, a season, and 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 to you, 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 just 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 it! 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.
