First I did not know what to think about this piece that I got in an email from Kathie – thanks, Kathie, consider this my reply 🙂
Then I thought about it and it occurred to me that this is something I get at this moment in time where I need to learn it. I looked into my life and indeed I could see the three types of angels described.
But let’s first take a look…
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.
Send this to every friend that you have on-line, including the person who sent it to you.
After this the piece goes a bit south because it gives a rating on the reader’s ‘people skills’ depending on how many replies are received and goes totally south-pole when making it into a regular chain letter promising me a wonderful encounter with another person at 4:35, I was just not to break the chain and send out this letter to at least seven other people.
Now, this I did not do – sorry for breaking the chain, but potentially it will get even better exposure, so if one of you readers feel like continuing, by all means, leave a comment and send this blog address to as many people as you like. By the way, leaving it here in this blog instead of adding columns over columns of >>> to the lines of the piece will make it easier to read after 10 forwards.
Anyways, there are lots of these type of messages but this one somehow stood out, that’s why I took the effort to post it here for other to get the same chance of gaining something out of it.
I did – how about you?
