The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a photo gallery of a ghost town for sale in Colorado. The small town of Uptop was once a thriving mining town, then a popular destination for skiers. Today, the lonely little village – including its empty chapel – is for sale for the sum of $2 million. Perhaps it will again be filled with activity, but the scene reminds us of the brevity of life.
Paul wrote, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out” (1 Tim. 6:7).
