    I really enjoyed this post. It really makes you think about what is important to put on your bucket list. There are so many things a person can do to make a difference! Thanks for all the reminders!
    See you at church tomorrow.

    Determining our priorities and sticking to them really does make a difference.

    What’s in my bucket list for when I retire is to be a church visitor (a visitor from church), to go to peoples’ homes and listen to them tell their stories. I think that’s what people need most of all (except for Christ, of course) — they just need someone to listen to them. I also want to be a neighborhood minister. That is to say, to identify a certain area, and let the people living in that area (probably about a dozen homes) know that I and the church I represent are praying for them — asking them how I can pray for them. I’ll prayerwalk the neighborhood weekly, of course, and once a month will make my presence known again to each of the families, perhaps with home-made cookies, or a crocheted cross from Oriental Trading (since I don’t crochet), or an announcement about an upcoming event at the church. I’m sure as relationships build that I will have the opportunity to share God’s love with them. These are things anybody could do. Even you!

    A great comment. God wants us all to be used in these ways!
