Sometimes at night when I can't sleep, my mind wanders into unfinished business. Last month, restless due to an uncomfortably bright streetlight and the fact I was not my own bed, I had such one such night. I realized I don't follow through on many things I say I plan on doing. And I decided that should change.
So for the year 2010, I have set four major goals--two "natural," two "supernatural"--to accomplish. These are things I've said I want to do but have yet to make much effort toward completion.
- Learn the play the fiddle
- Lose 30 pounds to be in shape to hike Longs Peak
- Read the entire Bible
- Become a saint
Of course there are other minor things I'd like to do that don't rise to the level of this list (which at the moment I hazard to call a "bucket list") and I may or may not accomplish those things this year. I just pray the Lord leaves me here long enough to learn to smoke a pipe.
