The term “bucket list” was popularized after the so-titled 2007 American movie about two terminally ill men on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they “kicked the bucket.” (I think the term is an appropriate symbol for the emptiness of most people's lives!)
On my personal profile page on this Dying to Live Blog, there is a place to ask a provocative question. Mine is: “If you knew this was your last day on earth, would you have to change your plans?” Did I know how relevant that question would be!
As a person living on life's threshold (aren't we all!), do I have a bucket list? Only this: to finish my race well and remain faithful. (2 Tim. 4:7). Morose thoughts on this, my 65th birthday? I don’t think so. What better day to reflect on God’s protection in a year of unforeseen events and to contemplate His promises as I look toward an unpredictable future. What better time than this to declare, I am well content, and my ‘bucket’ is full.
