Shannon and I recently watched a movie called "The Bucket List."
It is one of the most touching movies that we have seen in a long time.
Of course, we are both partial to any movie starring Morgan Freeman; he is, in our opinions, an amazing actor.
The movie is about making a "Bucket List." That is a list of things to do before you die,or in other words, "kick the bucket!"
This movie really spoke volumes to Shannon and me. We both realized just how important it is to live out our "Bucket List" dreams every day. Starting on our lists now, not later.
Just like the characters in the movie, all of our lists would be different.
But each day is full of "Bucket List" items to cross off, if we would just recognize them.
Anyway, if you love movies (and Morgan Freeman) as much as Shannon and I do, we both want to encourage you to see this one. As you watch it, make your own list. Realize how many "precious" things you have already witnessed in your life, and start today recognizing all the beauty God has placed around you. Live each day to find joy in your life.
There is a quote from the movie "Titanic", that we both love. It goes along so well with the message of "The Bucket List."
"I figure life's a gift and I don't intend on wasting it. You never know what hand you're gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you... to make each day count." ~ Jack Dawson
Here is a trailer for the movie that we found on You Tube.
We hope you enjoy it.
I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
