100 Life Goals


So in mens group the this last Monday we were asked to write down 100 goals. "It will be easy," says Ryan. "A lot of people can do it in less than an hour." So hear I am, 2 days later, and I still don't have my entire list together. In fact, I only have a little more than half of them. Anyhow, here are some of the ones that I have so far. 10 of them will be completed this year. Do you have a list? Leave a comment with a link to your list or just post your list in the comments.

Can I just say that you lead children to Christ every week so you can cross that off your list! Also, please don't keep your car clean because I'm worried for you to pick up hitchikers. And... one grape doesn't count as a piece of fruit -- just so you know.

Oh, also -- you totally need to get married and have some kids! We need to find someone for you. Unfortunately I don't know any single women in your age range but you should get all your friends to put on their goal list for 2009: "Fix Dan up with a potential wife."

Thanks, oh and I have picked up a dozen or so hitchhikers already. I've also been picked up a few times myself :) I'm thinking bananas. Maybe 10 grapes equals one fruit?

Yea, everyone should have that on their list of goals. One friend did put get Dan a cell phone on his list.

I promise to not punch you in the face.

And if you're up for walking, I know some dude who goes out walking at 5 AM most every day...

Thanks for posting on my list. I see your comment perfectly. I have no idea why you see strange characters when you type a comment.
