Reason, Season, Lifetime...

I missed a day of blogging, but here goes the last post for the week. I am sure we have all heard the phrase, "People come into your life for a reason, season, or lifetime." This is on my mind, because over the past 6 months, some people have been brought into my life and while I am still trying to figure out the purpose for them all, I am grateful. Please don't get me wrong. I have some FRIENDS that are lifelong, whom I have been close with since 2nd grade, and as I get older, I do know that my circle of associates will grow at a nice pace, but I can't say that I expect my circle of FRIENDS to grow much. Okay that's a bit off topic, but back to the point.

When people come into your life for a reason, it can be because of a lesson you need to learn, to help you realize some things about yourself, or just to throw a little flavor in your life. Which leads me to a people who come into your life for a season. In my experiences these seasonal people are not always the best things for you. We learn from them, and hopefully apply what we learned to our life and keep it moving. Season and Reason can be tied together. Now, those who come into our life for a lifetime.... I am most thankful to God for these kinds of people. They normally cover all grounds, they come into your life for a reason, and their season is forever (lifetime). This is truly just a blog, because my thoughts are so random on this topic. No matter if you are in my life for a reason, were here for a season, or will remain for a lifetime, I am grateful for you...


  1. I know this saying well and I tell it to myself often. I have had many people come in and out of my life in my short time here, on this place we call earth, so far. The ones that intrigue me the most are the ones who come in and out of my life repeatedly, but I can't seem to get rid of. Are they really here for a lifetime, or is it just for a reason during varying seasons of need? I'm extremely puzzled by this one and my thoughts are truly scattered just like yours NaturallyEJ.

    One thing I do know, the people that are in my life in this moment, for whatever reason, even if only for this season, but maybe for a lifetime, I am thankful for them. Even the ones whose season is up, because I have learned valuable life lessons of love, pain, disappointement, rejection, success, and whatever else was required of them.

  2. People do come in your life for all the reasons listed. Never regret just learn and grow...there will always be a "what if" scenario in whomever you indulge yourself with friend or more than friend, male or female. It goes hand in hand with my "soul mate" blog, you will meet a variety of people and with there being billions in the world you will have bried and lifetime encounters with a number of folks.

  3. I wrote this in the 7th grade about the passing away of my adopted Grand Father.
    I know that theres no way to absolutely verify this, but no one other than a guy named Steven “Drew” Chalker has proclaimed this as his.
    Honestly, I’m glad to maintain my “Author Unknown” status.
    So. Just to put it out there. I thought that I’d share my full version with you on my blog:
