Joe and Jessa a "Bucket List" is the number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime.
Several months ago I started to reflect on my life! I ended up smiling. The Lord in His mercy has given me so many incredible opportunities.
I honestly don't have things that I wish I would have done... I already did them!
The Lord taught me how to enjoy each stage of life. The best way to enjoy each stage is not waiting for LATER. Whether you are in junior high, high school, college, single, married, a parent, retired, old OR sick you have unique opportunities. So many times I had a tendency to anticipate the next stage of life. I was so excited about what I could do LATER. The Lord had to open my eyes to all He had planned for me TODAY! He had special jobs, ministries, people, events, traveling plans, challenges and new adventures for each stage of my life!
All that I needed to do was step out with courage and embrace the moment! In the process of doing all that I could do at each stage I ended up with No REGRETS!
Today, with ALS, I am in another stage of life. I am learning to do what I can do TODAY and not wait until TOMORROW!
I never made a BUCKET LIST but my life has been full!! In the process of living for the Lord He gave me a life filled with purpose and incredible memories! Joe and Jessa I pray that you will live for the Lord with all your heart. There will be hard stages, don't get me wrong, but they never have to stop you! "Only One Life 'Twill Soon be Past... Only What's Done for Christ Will Last." C. T. Studd
II Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race,
I have kept the faith.
