What’s Success?

Taking a small break from all that is political, I decided to share what happened Sunday to me. Now my wife Casey likes for us to go to church and as my stepbrother says, “Get my Jesus on!”


Anyway, usually at the end of the sermon he asks if you have a particular need to stand up, he wants to pray for you. And then follows with, if you see anyone standing nearby, stand with them.

This time he changed it, if you are successful, stand up. I shocked a few when I stood up. Maybe it was because my definition of success is different from most, probably. But I am.

You see, a few days earlier me and my wife had a “marriage check up”, its like a physical except for your marriage. Our marriage rates an A-. We have good health, good jobs, not hurting for money, and I am doing what I love with Abyss Press and the books. It’s not in the red, and it’s not enough to count as a third income, yet. But it’s a pleasure.

Looks like I’m successful to me. So how do you rate success?
