I’ve been wanting to write this for a few days, and I finally decided (and finally feeling like I could finally stay focused after fighting a cold for a few days) that I would go a head and do a little post on the things I want to do before I die. You can go ahead and scratch my list of 101 things I wanted to do in 1001 days, it’s time to make a real list, of things I want to accomplish.
I’m starting this list at 4:01 p.m. EST and I have no idea how long it will take me.
These aren’t in any order…
-Continue to honor God in everything I do (finances, relationships, etc).
-Marry a wife who loves God, our family, and her friends (yes, in that order)
*I want to marry a girl that makes me feel like this. I think I will.
-Become (or atleast continue becoming) a man who loves God, my family, and my friends (in that order)
-Visit Europe (Specifically Ireland and the UK, maybe Paris and some of Spain if there’s time or money left)
-Visit Patric in Brazil for his graduation from the Compassion program.
-Go skydiving <-I don’t know why either. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, even though I’m not much of a thrills guy.
–Shatter Statistics <-See about a quarter of the way down the page for some statistics that need to be shattered
-Vote in a way that I believe honors God
-Find a job that I enjoy getting up for each and every morning (Leaning strongly toward a non-profit)
-Have 2 kids. Even though there are times when Bekah and I fight, there were definitely times when we just went outside and threw the softball or football. It’s worth the petty arguments for the companionship.
-Spend time with my kids, I’d really love to coach them in whatever sport they decide to play
-Never miss an opportunity where I would feel like this video…
-Always say what I need to say
“You’d better know that in the end/Its better to say too much/Then never say what you need to say again” <-One of my motto
-Remember, the worse that anyone can say to you is no, so live without fear
-Watch the Buckeyes LIVE in a BCS Bowl game (Hopefully the National Championship!!)
-Find a church in whatever town I end up in that has a wonderful children’s and youth ministry program and get involved with them
-As soon as I have children, pray for their future spouses; that they are God-honoring and God-fearing individuals.
-Go back to Colorado, maybe even Colorado Springs?? I really liked it there!
Well, there you have it. I guess that concludes my list…
As I accomplish them, or if I think of any other ones, I will add them to the blog.
With much grace, peace and love,
