Sharing Poetry - Inspiration


To all the wonderful people in my life:
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 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 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.
Sometimes people come to 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.

How strange ...even i have experienced this,i want to share with you...i was fighting my battle with infertility for 8 long years ,there came a time when we decided to stop it...once i was waiting for my husband in a car parking area where someone greeted me...one of my very initial doc. with another very young doc...both of them insisted that i try just one last cycle with this new young doc...the moment i saw this person i felt a strange connection ,he had this angelic like presence....the next cycle i was pregnant and that too after a very simple procedure of IUI....now i have two kids one daughter and one son....that ten minute meeting with them totally changed my life

This post is very close to my heart.Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

This is such a special, truly beautifully written post, Leona. I know it will touch a lot of people.

I know just what you mean about people coming into your life sometimes for a reason and sometimes for a season. I've had all kinds and each one is valuable and treasured.

Beautiful! I agree, we meet people for a reason. It's wonderful, isn't it?

sensitive post-thanks for sharing. the difficulty is when a close family member is not dead but doesn't want to relate as much as you do. then you can only pray for god's influence to go with them. I have a son like that, actually two sons.
