Reason, Season, or a Lifetime

Old Sante Claus

Viewed: 893 times

I was reading some old emails from my friend and I found this writing he sent to me. Like to share it as it really says so much.

A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime

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.

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 realise 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.

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, 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.

Dear Old Sante Claus,

I was very moved by your verses "A Reason, A Season, A Lifetime" and "A Prayer To St. Nicholas." May I have your permission to use them on my website and in my daily activities?

I think by sharing the "Prayer to St. Nicholas" when there is a gathering of Santas would be a very nice and appropriate way to honor our Saint Nicholas and to begin our fellowship together.

Thank you for your work overseas with our young Sailors Soldiers, Marines and Airmen and your dedication and love to our country. You will be in my thoughts and prayers, especially on our nations birthday, but each day until everyone comes home. May God Bless you, our country, and our men and women in uniform!

Santa Dennis,

Retired Navy Senior Chief
