it’s the monday giggles…
Have you ever heard?
“People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.”
When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each 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. What we must realize is that when our need has been met or our desire fulfilled their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time for them to move on.
When 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, they are only meant to be with you 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. Lifetime relationships are rare! They are the once in a lifetime people who love you for being you!
ALL of these people have the potential of making you BETTER for having known them!
The Good news is that no matter the REASON, the SEASON or the LIFETIME – when people are with you…God knows who belongs in your life at the appointed time.
Trust and let go!
Whoever is meant to be there – “is…”
and some always will be!

Thank you for this insightful post. I know one thing. One important thing.
When I began this blogging journey I KNOW you have become one person who may only be in my life for a Season. I hope it will be a LONG SEASON, Yet, it is a God Season and He alone knows the purpose. You touch my life by being ‘you’. You inspire my life for the same reason and yes I am ‘learning’ by knowing you as a blogging friend and my own journey is richer as a result. Thank you. Your life and your family are precious to me also.

This is one of my favorite reflections. Not all things in life may be what we want, but they maybe what we need in order to grow and learn. God bless
