Last weekend, we took a little road trip to Hendersonville, NC, to visit some good friends that moved to take a pastorate. We were sad to see them move from 40 minutes away, to over 2 hours away. Not anymore! I love the mountains. I love the rivers and the parks and the beautiful sites, and the waterfalls.......... wow!!!
I marked one off the old bucket list the other day. We were site seeing in the Pisgah National Forest, checking out several cool trails. One was a sweet spot that you could walk down to the river and walk out on the rocks. It was so close to a waterfall you could feel the spray when the wind blew. The kids all took off their shoes to wade in the ice cold water. One crazy dude was swimming in the pool under the falls. Me and my friend had a spontaneous moment, and we dove in to experience the moment ourselves. I did a belly flop on the way in, and the sting of the dive helped offset the sting of the cold. We swam around for a minute, and then I swam under the falls the feel the power of the water on my head. WOW! That was really awesome!
Do you have a bucket list? Its a list of things you would like to do before you kick the bucket. There are lots of things I would like to do before I die. Lots of adrenaline pumping activities like skydiving, bungee jumping, driving a stock car, etc. I may or may not do some of these things, but one thing I hope I have done every day throughout my life is pointing people to Christ. That's number one on the list!
