Reason, Season, Lifetime.

People come into your life for a reason or a season or a lifetime. This body of works speaks about precious souls that have been in or still are part of my life. These people have taught, loved, given, guided me throughout the course on my life and continue to do so.

When someone comes into 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 they are 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 realise is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled. Their work is done. The prayer you sent up has now 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 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.
