It's all how you view it

I used to believe that success looked something like this...

or this...

or this...




But I had it all wrong.


Real success is found in the things that you cannot buy or sell- because you could never put a price on them.

Real success is found in the night time prayer of two little boys who are discovering the one who created them.


Real success is found in forgiveness of a friend.

Real success is found in the laughter of a baby who understands she is cherished.


Real success is found in the marriage that lasts throughout the years.

Real success is found in the smiling faces of children who are oblivious to hatred that occurrs between races.


Real success is found in the college student who discovers their future lies in Jesus.

Real success is found in the hug of a child who finally understands she is forever home.


Real success is found in His love.


For in Jesus, My love for you is revealed. John 17:26
