Bucket List

Posted by Leona Bergstrom

Speaking of lists, we really should watch and think about the movie Bucket List. It doesn’t get great reviews, and didn’t last in the theatres all that long, but it really is a must-watch. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are both diagnosed with terminal health conditions. Making a very unlikely pair, they set out to do the things they’ve always wanted to do. One man has the financial means to help the other fulfill his dreams, and so off they go. Yes, of course, they go sky-diving and experience the world. But the deeper question becomes evident. What do I want to do with the years God has given me?

I remember using the question, “What would you do if you knew you would not fail?” So many things on my imaginary “bucket list” fall off because I’m afraid of failing or of being unable to do something.

Maybe it’s time for a new list.....
Here's the trailer for the movie to help you decide if you want to watch it or not.
