"To do" List

Christine over at The Hodge Lodge posted a couple weeks ago 10 things she wanted to do before she died. I thought then it was an interesting post, but to be honest, I struggle with this one! There is so much I want to do before I die, and yet so little!

Ten things to do before I die...
  1. Lead as many people to Christ as I possibly can...(especially my children)
  2. Get my sinful flesh as much under control as I possibly can so I don't have to shrink back in shame when I meet my Maker...
  3. (this is where I get stuck...I've already been sitting here 5 minutes not being able to think of anything else...) I guess it's not a bad thing I can't think of anything else...(I've been sitting another 5 minutes) Well, I'm tired of sitting here (impatience) If I broke down #2 and made it a little more specific, I could probably come up with 50 separate things I want to fix before I die! LOL

I'm actually really tired. Goodnight! Sweet dreams...

I just want to get out of the way and do what He wants me to do.
And then anything I do will be want I want to do before I die.

I would like to do some traveling though. Maybe that is part of the plan. ;)

Everyone is getting spiritual with their lists, which is great! But I did my list as fun things. Maybe I should change it to Ten Fun Things I want to Do Before I Die or something like that. If I made a spiritual list it would include seeing my girls become Christians and all that. Thanks for sharing your list. I laughed when you gave up and went to bed. : )

lol, I tried to go the fun way too...but I just sat there then, as well! I must live in a closet! lol
(then what comes to mind is to
#1 have my house clean for more than five minutes before i have to pick up the same mess I just picked up,
#2 have dinner planned without having to run to the grocery store because I forgot to ge tthe meat out of the freezer, and
#3 catch up on my laundry--is that even possible??)



The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
