Kalin Art & Spirit

a Reason, A Season or a Lifetime

Relationships are what God gives us in order to see ourselves,
define who we are, and learn to grow more Godlike.
-GenieDjinn

Today Im a bit down, realizing that a new friendship Ive made will soon
be changing due to their moving. When Ive invested time, and thought,
hopes and love into growing our friendship and keeping it alive,
by making sure we contacted each other on a regular basis and kept
lines of communication flowing as best I could.
They fed me when I needed feeding
and made me see the world more brightly,
if for only a season.
Our time together seems all too short
and the cost to my heart so dear.
I know how it is to move away;
everything is new and exciting,
people adapt to their environment,
and promises to stay in touch are broken,
~not out of spite, but out of necessity.
I have to learn to take this poem to heart….
~but its not easy!

Reason, Season, or Lifetime
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.

For all my friends of all stripes, shades and hues.
I love you, dearly.
Your lessons make me who I am and who I will be.
You will always live in my heart~
so please, plan to come by and visit!
Namaste’
