My Bucket List

A couple of years ago a movie hit the theaters titled The Bucket List. This movie was about two cancer patients who, together, started crossing off the list all the things they wanted to do before they died. The movie caused many to begin thinking about the very same thing. The movie caused many to ask the question, if only to themselves, “Why wait until bad news comes to begin doing all the things I want to do?”

I had been giving this kind of thing some thought long before the movie come out. However, like most people I imagine, I began to actually write down those things I would like to do while I still have the opportunity to do so. I am listing my top five below.

1. I want to go to Israel.  

2. I want to tour the White House. I am a history lover. This kind of stuff fascinates me.

3. I want to write a book. I at least have an idea.

4. I want travel to the West Coast on the old Route 66. A great trip for me would be to start on in the east, making and all the stops along the way. A trip down memory lane of early Americana would be refreshing.

5. I want to travel to Rome and stand in the center of the Coliseum. There is so much Christian history linked to this site. It would be an amazing place to visit.

One thought on “My Bucket List

  1. Dad got to visit Israel in the late 80’s. He had traveled to Finland before his marriage in 1952 and worked with an evangelist, but the trip to Israel made quite an impression on him and he was so blessed to have been able to go.

    One of your other items on the list, visiting the White House: does that include DC in general or have you already done that type of trip? I have a cousin who used to be a lobbyist in DC and has many contacts there. Perhaps at some point, when you know you’ll be making the trip, I can help in some way. Hey, one never knows. It makes a great family experience!
