Traveling Light

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.”  1 Timothy 6:7

This brings to mind a Bill Cosby comedy routine where his father would tell him he brought him into this world and he can take him back out.

Lord, we desire to keep Your perspective and priorities in mind today.  And here’s a simple poem . . .


We came into this life
with nothing

source –

and surely in it
we’ve nothing but Christ

and when it comes
time to leave

we’ll be carried off
oh so light.


  1. Great reminder Deb… to always have in mind what are the true priorities in life as we make our day to day decisions. Lord bless you. Thnks for a wonderful reminder for us this morning.

  2. Perfectly beautiful word, Sis Deb. God bless you today and always.

  3. I need lot of reminders, it seems! God bless you, Pastor Rob, as you travel with Him!

  4. Love you and God bless you too, Sis Caddo De-Light! 😀

  5. This is such a lovely poem and The picture of the bubble was just the perfect touch. I am so glad that you are adding pictures to your posts. You have a knack for choosing them well.


  6. Adding pictures was a huge accomplishment for me! haha! I know reading blogs where pictures are included helps me to understand better, leaves a visual with me as well as the words. I would like to take all the pictures myself. Maybe I’ll get there yet, with His help. God bless you as go with Him today! love and prayers!

  7. Traveling Light…YES! I long for the day…

  8. God bless you, Jeff, as you chose Jesus and He lightens your load! 🙂 Praying for you and yours!

  9. We are one day closer!

  10. Amen, Mentor Angela! God bless you and your beautiful family! love and prayers!

  11. It reminds me of the old hymn “You can have all this world. Just give me Jesus!”

  12. Oh Yes! I love that, Pastor J! God bless you as you keep keeping on with Him!
