Reason Season Lifetime
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 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 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 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 anyway;
And put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being part of my life,
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Unless one stumbles upon these treasures they are likely not to know of the beautiful wildflowers blanketing the coastal regions. It reminds me of the love and energy that surround us. We might not give much thought to this until we need to tap into it.
So what exactly is the purpose of these said wildflowers? Sustenance for wildlife? Erosion control? Who knows but they sure make life more beautiful.
A friend who recently showed up in a time of need reminded me people come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. The point is they all serve a purpose, and I really can’t say which is more important than another.
In such circumstances, I also found someone I considered a lifetimer to be seasonal or perhaps reasonal. Though saddened I’m not going to try to analyze or feel bitter. I’m thankful for the friendship in the form it came for the years it lasted…
My point is that next time something simple yet profound touches you or someone unexpected or unlikely drops in your life don’t spend so much time analyzing the why but enjoy it while it lasts. And if the wonder of it lasts a lifetime, consider yourself doubly blessed.
