Thanking, like thinking, is manna that cannot be stored. It lives in the moment of its own performance, or else it petrifies.
Thanking that has become lazy turns into the anxiety that you will lose what you have. This is no longer thanks; it is an aspect of insecurity, if not greed.
Thanking does not grab onto the gift , but simple delights in it. We can think of a gift - even if the gift is something intangible, like time itself - as wanting a hug from us, but not wanting to be chained by our affection.
Thanking leaves the gift free.

If we intensify our gratefulness sufficiently, it grows dense, like the other soul function, and becomes a self-sufficient activity.
We no longer need anymore to thank, or anything to be thankful for.
We become thanking itself, a part of the gratitude at the heart of creation and it is more than enough.

Reason, Season or Lifetime????

Reason, Season or Lifetime????

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a life time. 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 and learn. They bring you 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.

A lifetime relationship teaches you life time lesson, 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 relationship and ares of your life.

Not everyone who comes into your life is supposed to stay there. Sometimes you're just a way station. Love them while they are there, love them when they move on, and trust that we all find our true home eventually.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime
