It's not by the tithes you give to the church, Or the standard you use to measure self-worth. It's not by decisions you make every day, Or the many good things directed your way. It's not by the dollars you put in the bank, Or the folks on the job that bow to your rank. It's not by the house with hot tub and pool, Or the fact that your kids are leaders in school. It's not about beauty, fortune or fame, Or all the material things you can claim. The barometer used to measure success, Is your definition of happiness.
