View Full Version : Think About It

Here is something a friend sent to me that I wanted to share with you.

People 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, 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 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 it! It is real! But, only for a

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime 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 (any way);
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

Thank you for being a part of my life....
