The Bucket List


Every now and then you hear conversation about peoples' bucket list. Your know what they are. A wish list of things individuals would like to do before they die. Go on a great adventure. Visit some far off country. Or whatever else one would like to do before dying.

Personally, I would like to cycle with dolphins. Most peoples' bucket list includes swimming with dolphins; but let's face it, what is so clever about that? The dolphins are in their environment and they swim, and you swim with them.

I would like to do something more challenging. I like to get the dolphins out of their comfort zone. I can cycle. Let's see how clever they are! I challenge them to a cycle race round the park in my town; or a leisurely cycle trip in the countryside.

Seriously though, people have all these grand ideas of things they would like to do before they die. I wonder how many have on their list the wish to:

Prepare to die.

What? What do I mean to prepare to die?

I mean:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me.” John 14:6.

  4. And when the final day comes, at the top of my bucket list, is to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant." All else is temporary.
    Blessings, My Friend!

  5. So...now you have me thinking with a twist. Dolphins are highly intelligent - 'tis a proven fact. Do you s'pose THEY have bucket lists? Perhaps one would be riding a cycle on the surf with YOU...carrying a bucket of course, loaded with fish?

  6. This reminds me of an olden parable: A youngster, observing his grandparents with their Bibles remarks, "They're studying for their finals."

  8. I'm sure Disney could make a dolphin ride a bicycle! Animation has come so far that I can actually see you riding with a dolphin! Let's make a proposal and see what happens! LOL
