I am not a fan of the idea of a “Bucket List,” mainly because I believe that something is seriously wrong if it takes fear of impending death to motivate individuals to pursue the desires of their heart. I prefer the idea of “Lifejoys” as a list of things to share with Jesus. To me, sharing experiences with Jesus that are meaningful and special to me – those things that I get excited about and truly enjoy – makes the experience that much more joyous. Imagine listening to beautiful music with the Creator of all music, seeing a special place in the world with the world’s Designer, or doing something outside of your comfort zone that you’ve always wanted to do with your Very Best Friend by your side, sharing the whole experience with you. What could be more wondrous?
