Reason, season or a lifetime???

Stumbled upon this old but beautiful article...

"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 the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing 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.

Some people come into 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."

….Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same….

Do lifetime relationships really mean just the ones that last a life time or ones that impact one for a lifetime? Unfortunately till you know if it was a season or a reason so how do you know what to do for them..Just a thought – can you actually know while you’re in it to know if it’s a reason, season or a lifetime to know what to do for that person?

Lifetime relationships can leave long lasting imprints or just stay forever. I believe in the latter, but it's how you perceive it.

If you're in a relationship, you should already be doing all you can for that person, irrespective of it being for a reason, season or a lifetime. A lifetime gives you the pleasure of more opportunities for sure :-)
