Bucket List

 by Macy Johnson

“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,

miracles that cannot be counted.”

(Job 5:9 NIV)


In a few short weeks my husband, Jeff, and I will embark on a Magical Mystery Tour - a road trip to the Grand Canyon. I have never visited the national park, and it has been sitting on my bucket list for a long, long time. I sense an urgency to seize opportunities, to make things happen.


Jeff had the privilege of being taken up in a small plane over the canyon many years ago. This time he will explore it with me from inside a helicopter! (Flying in a helicopter is also on my bucket list.)


During the nineteen days on the road, we will also visit six different sets of friends and family. It will be a journey to remember, and an opportunity to fulfill promises made long ago to ourselves and others.


“How is this a God Sighting?” you might ask. When I told a friend about the upcoming trip I was reminded of the magnitude and majesty of the Grand Canyon. I cannot imagine what it will be like to stand on the edge, or swoop through the massive structure. Pictures and videos cannot do it justice. It is not man-made: only God could create something so awe-inspiring. I want to experience the handiwork of my heavenly Father every chance I get.


I have visited Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo, Texas, and Providence Canyon in southwest Georgia. I’m certain neither can hold a candle to the Grand Canyon. And yet, the most magnificent wonder on earth is only a drop in the bucket compared to what God has prepared for us in eternity. Heaven is more than we can imagine!


I will be amazed at what God has done and what He has planned for me. I hope you will, too!
