Corlew?s Bucket List

Twelve things I want to do before I kick the bucket:

??

1.?I want to get a hole-in-one in disc golf.

??

2.?I want to read a book to my grandchildren. (When I have some.)

??

3.?I want to take a cross country trip on a train.

??

4.?I want to have such a confidence and trust in God that worry would be an ancient memory.

??

5.?I want to witness the Cubs win the World Series.

??

6.?I want to read both volumes of Stephen Charnock’s The Existence and Attributes of God; I’ve tried numerous times and have never gotten very far.

??

7.?I want to actually witness a tornado up close. (But not too close!)

??

8.?I want to thwart a bank robbery and then when I’m interviewed on TV I’ll say, “I just did what anyone would have done. The real heroes are policemen and firefighters and those serving in our military.”

??

9.?I want people to constantly encourage me to have a 2nd helping of dessert because I’m getting too skinny.

??

10.?I want to play a set of tennis on a grass court.

??

11.?I want to hike the entire Appalachian Trail – all 2,200 miles; when I get to the summit of Mt. Katahdin I will thank Jesus for hiking with me, kiss the ground and take off my hiking boots and never wear them again.

??

12.?I want to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I accomplished all that God wanted me to do here on earth – no more / no less.

??

Some of these are more likely than others but I think we should always dream, hope and have some personal goals. Whether I check most of these off or not doesn’t matter a whole lot because either way – I’ll have had a great life: I had all the blessings found in Christ, a fantastic wife and awesome children and a life’s calling as a pastor that has been the best job in the world!

??

What’s on your bucket list?

Peace,
