Well, there's my list. You are welcome to do this on your blog too. Or you can just leave a comment. It would be interesting to find out if anyone has done any of the weird ones or the "out of town" ones!

But probably the best thing I've ever done was the day I met Jesus! A lot of people in the world wouldn't consider this one for their "top-ten" list, but for me personally, it would be #1. It's the best thing anyone could do with their lives.

"For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever should believeth in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life!" John 3:16

good to know!enjoyed reading this. I may have to do this too:o)

Enjoyed reading your list. #15 is the best thing I have done :)

Diane Teague said...

My number one is your number one. I will never get over and hope I never forget the day Jesus saved my soul from a life of wasted, riotous living. Isn't He great!

#15 Had to be a top second. (althought I did not do this but boy do I reap the benefits)

The most moving was #66 I will never forget how I felt standing in a place where so many were tortured and died because of a man who thought he was the almighty.(he knows now) May we never forget or let it happen again.

I counted and I've experienced 46 of the 99. Not bad, I guess but saw some things I would still like to do. Thanks for sharing:)#7 holds special memories.
