To end the old year and ensure a clean start to the new, the U.S Customs allied with the airline unclaimed baggage department hold an auction.
"Unbelievable" is the only word that can describe the stuff that was either lost or unclaimed by the travelling public.
This year, as part of the inventory that accumulated at airport terminals, were a full size portrait of the Mona Lisa, a chain saw and an 80 lb bronze bust.
There were innumerable sets of golf clubs, tennis rackets and assorted sports equipment. Rifles and fire arms, hand guns and even semi-automatics were left at the carousels; enough to arm a militia.
As for personal items, there were wallets, watches, bill folds and jewelry in abundance.
The list goes on.
Even pets were left behind.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
If human beings can be so careless and nonchalant about their possessions while en-route through this world, what about their journey to the next?
Jesus said:
"What shall it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" 
These are two questions to which there are no answers. Each person must supply their own. But it sure would be sad if we reached our final destination beyond the grave and found ourselves in the baggage department searching for our lost soul.
