A Reason, A Season or a Lifetime.

Post 494 ~ ~ ~Tuesday, 12th August, 2008.

Hi Everyone ~~ I hope all is well with you and
your lives are going great. I am fine, and stayed
indoors for most of the day. I did get some washing
fairly dry in the strong (cold) winds.

My Home Care lady came so we are tidy again,
which is always nice, Looking forward to fresh bed-
clothes, but that is a fair way off.

I have a nice article that my friend Margaret sent
me. Thank you Margaret.

People come into your life for a reason, a season or
a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will
know what to do for that person.

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 a god-send 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's 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.
You 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.

Thank you for being part of my life.
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
First joke tonight is from my friend Embee.
Thank you Mike. Hi Chris.

A man went in and tried to rob a Bank, he was given
money and as he was leaving asked one of the customers
standing there, "Did you see me rob the Bank?"
The man whispered back, "Yes I did."
The robber shot him in the head.

He turned to another couple in the Bank. "Did you see me
do this robbery?"

"No Sir, I did not, the man replied instantly, "But I know
my wife did."

One from my friend Gramma Ann . Thank you Ann.

A woman walked up to a littleold man rocking in a
chair on his porch. "I couldn't help noticing how
haPpy you look,'
" What's your secret for a long
and happy life?"

"I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day," he said,
I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fatty foods
and never exercise."

"That's amazing," the woman said, "How old are you?"

Thank you Gina for the next one.
Little Boy at the nude beach.

A mother and father take their five year old son to a
nude beach.. As the boy walks along the sand, he notices
that many of the women have boobs bigger than his
mothers, so he goes back to ask her why.

She tells her son, "The bigger they are, the sillier the lady Is."

The boy, pleased with the answer, goes to play in the
ocean but returns to tell his mother that many of the men
have larger things than his Dad does. She replies, " The
bigger they are, the dumber the man is."

Again satisfied with her answer the boy goes back to
the ocean to play, Shortly after, the boy returns and
promptly tells his mother,

"daddy is talking to the silliest lady on the beach, and
the longer he talks, the dumber he gets."

Thank you Dianne for this next one. "Two Little Boys."

Two little boys aged 8 and 10 were excessively
mischievous. They were always getting into trouble
and their parents knew all about it.

If any mischief occurred in their town, the two boys
were probably involved.
The boy's mother heard that a preacher in town had
been success

ful in disciplining children, so she asked
if he would speak to her boys.

The preacher agreed, but asked tto see them
individually. So the mother sent her 8 year old son
first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the
preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat
the younger boy down and asked him sternly,
"Do you know where God is, son?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no
reponse, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth
hanging open.

So the preacher repeated his question, in an even
sterner tone, "Where is God?"

Again the boy made no attempt to answer, The
preacher raised his voice even more and shook
his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "Where
is God?"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran
directly home and dove into his closet, slamming
the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet, he
asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied,
"GOD is missing and they think we did it."

There was a man walking along a beach. He came
across a bottle with a cork in it. The man picks up
the bottle and pulls out thhe cork. A loud roar
follows and a genie appears. The genie says to the man,
"I'm a little tired today and I can only give you 2 wishes."

The man said, :That;s OK, two is enough. First I would
like one-billion dollars in a Swiss bank account."

Poof - The genie hands the man a paper and says, "Here's
the number to your bank account."

Next, the man said, "I would like to be irrestible to women."

Poof _ The genie turned him into a box of chocolates!!

A young woman who was worried about her habit of biting
her fingernails down to the quick was advised to take up
Yoga to ease her nervousness. She did, and soon her
fingernails were growing normally.

One day, her friend stopped her and noticing her long,
groomed nails asked her if Yoga had totally cured her

:No ," she replied, "but now I can reach my toe-nails,
I bite them instead."

It's that time again - time to say Goodnight. I hope you
are all enjoying the week we are in. Be kind to each
other and keep on smiling. Love and Best Wishes to
you all. Cheers, Merle.

Dear Merle, once again I am chuckling away here at my computer and Abe is wondering what's wrong with me. I especially like the little boy at the nude beach. LOL

I wonder if I could get a person to come to my home once every several weeks to tidy up. That's something I'm going to be doing today. It's also time to sweep up all three bedrooms even though only one is used, dust and things still collect in the other two. Hope you sleep well tonight and also hope you had a wonderful day. Love, Patty

Three words that speak a lot...

Dave said...

Great post as always Merle... especially love the little boy jokes! *S*

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Gledwood said...

Was there something wrong with my glasses last night or did you add on that reason/season/lifetime bit? That's all too true, friendship does not always last forever. And I've found one of the killer things in relationships of all kinds is unrealistic expectations~ definitely... anyway I must hop off again, take care


Diane said...

Loved the jokes...as usual. It brightened my day!

I've been away from my blogging buddies for awhile and I've missed it terribly. Hope to post myself today.

Jim said...

Hi Merle, Margaret sent you a nice article, thank you for sharing it with us.
I guess most bloggers are friends for a SEASON, a few for a REASON. I have one lady friend who is now in heaven, she was a blogger friend for a lifetime (what she had left after we met).
I'm sure if we blog long enough we will have several lifetime blogging friends.
