  Reason, Season, 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, 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 or out 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 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. 

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime 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 of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Prayer.

May today there be peace within you. 
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, 
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing that you are a child of God. 
Let His presence settle into your bones, and allow your 
soul freedom to sing, dance, and to bask in the sun. 
It is there for each and every one of you.

I'll Only Say This Once.

How many times have we heard this saying before, our parents said it to discipline us, but think about the words, 
what do they say to you, are you under pressure by them, do they make you feel uncomfortable. The stress of 
everyday life is put on you by the severity of the words. There is no compromise, no leverage for error in them.

But think of the pressure the one who is saying the words must be under, they have a lot on their minds and only want 
to keep whatever the situation is in perspective, by prolonging the argument it does not solve anything, by saying 
"I will only say this once" gives the person it is directed to the chance to concentrate on what is being said so that it will 
not need to be repeated, and can be dealt with there and then.

We all have had times when harsh words have hurt our feelings, we prolong the agony by taking the words to heart, 
by allowing them to fester and become larger than they were meant to be, all our hurts and disappointments are within
this package and affect our lives and determine how we react to others. Take this package and throw it away, imagine 
putting it in a balloon and sending it off to the heavens so the angels can deal with it. Don't try and keep it within you,
just let it go.

Children and Angels

By: Joseph J. Mazzella

I have often felt that children are far closer to the angels than we adults are. They seem far more ready to share joy freely and to give love unconditionally to others. They seem to easily know how to celebrate life, laugh, smile, and embrace delight just as God meant for all of us to do. Nothing brought this point home to my heart more clearly than a story a friend of mine recently shared with me about her daughter.

Her daughter while mentally handicapped has a soul that shines brighter than a thousand suns. She loves everyone and is never afraid to express her affection to others. Once when she was at Church with her Mom it came time to give others the sign of peace. Now most people do this with a handshake or a gentle touch. This little Angel Child , however, wasn’t one to hold back on her love. She turned around and gave a sweet, elderly lady next to her a huge hug full of both energy and love. Later after Church that same lady with tears in her eyes approached the girl’s Mom and spoke to her. My husband just died a week ago, she said. I felt so alone that I was going to go home and take some pills to end my life today, but now thanks to your little girl I believe that there still is love in this world.

Our children can teach us so much about love. Our children can teach us so much about joy. Our children can teach us so much about life. Let us not ignore the lessons they give us every day. Let us instead learn from them and share more love and joy with others in our own lives. God loves us and put us here to love each other. Sometimes we forget this, but thankfully God is patient and forgiving with us. He never fails to send us joyous angels and happy children to guide us back to love again.
