If it comes back, love it forever.

It's kind of fun to do the impossible.

Never be afraid to do something different... remember that the Ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals

Reason, Season and Lifetime

People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a 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,

or to provide you with guidance and support,

to aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend to you, 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


Sometimes they die. Sometimes they just 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.

And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall,

the season eventually ends.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;

those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional

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 in your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being part of my life.

~�Brian A. "Drew" Chalker~

To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.

ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Everything has a beauty but not everyone sees it.

The cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought. Still it had VERY long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt that it ought to be treated with respect.

"Cheshire Puss," she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name; however it only grinned a little wider. "Come, its pleased so far," thought Alice, and she went on. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.

"I don't much care where�" said Alice.

"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

"�so long as I get SOMEWHERE," Alice added as an explanation.

"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

If you can't be a God,
Then I will be one.
