This idea struck me and I feel I needed to write this.
What is success? A boat? 2 RVs in your driveway? A finished book? A published book? Your children graduating from high school? Waking up in the morning from a good night's sleep?
There are many ideas of success--depending on what our goals are. And they are all dependent upon our individual needs.
So, what is it?
For me, material things can get in the way of a vision that should start from the home. Something that is clouded over through the world's point of view.
I had a friend over a few weeks ago and the topic arose. She knew of my doubts and she reassured me. She pointed out the painting of the temple on my wall. How my husband and I held each other while we visited. How respectful my children were. She pointed out how she felt the presence of the Lord in our home. She said nothing else should matter beyond that because that was success to her.
How much she put things into perspective for me. Those are the things I ought to bear in mind at all times.
They continue to dig down and the trucks continue to haul away the dirt.
