"Reason, Season, or Lifetime" by Margaret Hope


People come into your life for a reason, a season,
or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is you
will know what to do for each person.
When someone comes 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
the reason you need them to be. Then without any
wrong doing on your part or 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 was
met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The
prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time
to move on.
Some people come into your life for a season, because
your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They may
teach you something you have never done. 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. It is said that love is blind but
friendship is clairvoyant.
