Things To Do Before I Die?

Here is my list that I have started working on...

1. Visit every Major League Baseball park (2 down, 28 to go)
2. Visit the Middle East
3. Write the novel that keeps floating in my mind.
4. Pitch a television show to someone who can do something about it.
5. Print "Faux Poes Foes" on a black t-shirt
6. Complete my Spider-Man Comics collection

I'll be adding to this as I go. Feel free to post some of your ideas.

Thoughts to Journal:
Day 1: Begin a list of things you want to do before you die.
Day 2: What makes a person a “Christian” (in the first century Christian was a derogatory term literally meaning “a Christ follower”)? As you journal these thoughts keep today’s verse in mind.
Day 3: Find an object in your home that “works” by doing nothing at all. Journal a description about that object, maybe draw a sketch as well.
Day 4: Google or Wikipedia some notes on Abraham. Write your notes or print and paste your notes.
Day 5: It’s amazing that Rahab, a prostitute, is used as an “example” in the Bible. What don’t you like about yourself that God overlooks and is still willing to use you. Warning: this is a chance to confess your sins and struggles. Be honest and brutal. 1 John 1:9
Day 6: Make a list of three things you can do this week to “live your faith”.
