Bucket List of Blessings~

A bucket list.

Do you have one?

You know - a list of all the places you hope to go,
and all the things you plan to do,
and all the goals you want to accomplish before you "kick the bucket".

The entire month of October, we are going to explore what it means to live a life that counts.  The older I get, the more I realize just how fast time goes.  The more birthdays I celebrate, the truer the words of James become.

What do you know about tomorrow?
How can you be so sure about your life?
It is nothing more than mist that appears for only a little while before it disappears. 
James 4:14, CEV


I want my life to count.
Every moment of it.
Everything I do.

So, before we even jump into October, I'd like to invite you to start thinking about your bucket list.

Not your trip to Italy or your hike up Mt. Everest.
(Although, I hope you are able to visit Venice someday, and if mountain climbing is your thing, scale the heights of the highest mountain in the world.)

Not the masterpiece you are going to paint or the book you are going to write.
(Although, I hope you have the satisfaction of one day hanging your portrait over your fireplace
and opening the crisp, white pages of a book filled with words from your heart. )

Your bucket list of blessings.

Your plan to take the everyday moments of life and make. them. count.

What can you (and I) do now, today, in the day to day living of our life, that will make a profound impact on the people around us?

What can you (and I) do to make the little, ordinary moments of life, BIG?

How can we live each and every day to the best of our ability and to the greatest pleasure of our Heavenly Father?

This is what matters.

This is living a life that counts.

This is living out our God-given destiny.



So...

what's on your bucket list of blessings?



How do you plan on spending the precious time you've been given here on earth?

Don't you want to lay your head on your pillow each night knowing you lived each day to the fullest?


Me, too.


Let's get started.


Let's make. it. count.
