“A reason, A season, and A lifetime”
by Brian A.”Drew” Chalker
People come into your life for a reason,
a season, or a lifetime.
People always come into your life for
a reason, a season and 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 a 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 or out and force you to take
a stand. What we must realize is that our need has
been met, our desire fulfilleed; 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 a lifetime of
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 (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…..

Just follow your heart, for your heart will know
the love that’s meant for you;
the love that’s going to change your world
and last a lifetime through.
The perfect love that’s yours alone
and has been from the start;
the love that you can only find
by following your heart.
To all my friends:
As you follow your heart to wherever it leads,
I’m hoping you’ll find it will be into the arms
of someone who needs you.
It is said that love is blind-
but friendship is clairvoyant.
Life is not measured by
the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that
take our breath away.

(ty, Rev. Tom)
“A 91-year-old woman died after living a very long dignified life. When she met God, she asked Him something that had really bothered her for a very long time. “If Man was created in God’s image, and if all men are created equal, why do people treat each other so badly?
God replied that each person who enters our life has a unique lesson to teach us. It is only through these lessons that we learn bout life, people and our relationships with God.
This confused the woman, so God began to explain:
“When someone lies to you, it teaches you that things are not always what they seem. The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look beyond the masks people wear if you want to know what is in their hearts. Remove your own masks to let people know who you really are.
When someone steals from you it teaches you that nothing is forever. Always appreciate what you have. You never know when you might lose it. Never take your friends or family for granted, because today and sometimes only this very moment is the only guarantee you may have.
When someone inflicts injury upon you, it teaches you that the human state is a very fragile one. Protect and take care of your body as best as you can, it’s the one thing that you are sure to have forever.
When someone mocks you, it teaches you that no two people are alike. When you encounter people who are different from you, do not judge them by how they look or act, instead base it on the contents of what is in their hearts.
When someone breaks your heart, it teaches you that loving someone does not always mean that the person will love you back. But don’t turn your back on love, because when you find the right person, the joy that one person brings you will make up for all of your past hurts. Times a thousand fold.
When someone holds a grudge against you, it teaches you that everyone makes mistakes. When you are wronged, the most virtuous thing you can do is forgive the offender without pretense. Forgiving those who have hurt us is often the most difficult and painful of life’s experiences, but it is also the most courageous thing a person can do.
When a loved one is unfaithful to you, it teaches you that resisting temptation is Man’s greatest challenge. Be vigilant in your resistance against all temptations. By doing so, you will be rewarded with an enduring sense of satisfaction far greater than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.
When someone cheats you, it teaches you that greed is the root of all evil. Aspire to make your dreams come true, no matter how lofty they may be. Do not feel guilty about your success, but never let an obsession with achieving your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.
When someone ridicules you, it teaches you that nobody is perfect. Accept people for their merits and be tolerant of their flaws. Do not ever reject someone for imperfections over which they have no control.”
Upon hearing the Lord’s wisdom, the old woman became concerned that there are no lessons to be learned from man’s good deeds. God replied that Man’s capacity to love is the greatest gift He has. At the root of kindness and love, and each act of love also teaches us a lesson. The woman’s curiosity deepened. God, once again began to explain:
“When someone loves us, it teaches us love, kindness, charity, honesty, humility, forgiveness, acceptance, and all of these can counteract all the evil in the world. For every good deed, there is one evil deed. Man alone has the power to control the balance between good and evil, but because the lessons of love are not taught often enough, the power is too often abused.
When you enter someone’s life, whether by plan, chance or coincidence, consider what your lesson will be. Will you teach love or a harsh lesson of reality? When you die, will your life have resulted in more loving or more hurting? More comfort or more pain? More joy or more sadness? Each one of us has the power over the balance of the love in the world.
Use it wisely!”
