1-27-15 Nothing

Mortality

The moment you were born you did not bring

A whit beyond the barest flesh and bone;

You do not really own a single thing

Belonging to this world of wood and stone,

And all the stuff that you accumulate,

No matter what it’s worth to mortal man,

Will still be here when you leave this estate;

In fact you’ll have the same as you began.

Be grateful for the things that you possess

For it can all be gone within a flash;

The only matter you should dare obsess

Is being more like Christ, His way suffice.

From nothing bodies come, to nothing go

Yet all you do between your soul will show.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1 Timothy 6:7 KJV

    My writings have not caught up with the day yet but we are certainly on the same page. I said there is no uHaul following the hearse. LOL
