HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE



Someone sent this to me several years back and I thought others might like to read it, due to the times we are going through now.

I was walking down lifes' highway, a long time ago; One day I saw a sign that read "Heaven's Grocery Store". As I got a little closer, the door came open wide, and when I came to myself, I saw I was standing inside.

I saw a host of Angels; they were standing everywhere; One handed me a basket and said, "My child, shop with care". Every thing a Christian needed was in that Grocery Store; And all you couldn't carry, you could come back the next day for more.

First, I got some Patience, Love was in the same row. Further dow was Understanding, you need that every where you go. I got a box or two of Wisom, a bag or two of Faith, I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost for it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some Strength and Courage to help me run this race; By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some Grace.

I didn't forget Salvation, for salvation that was free, so I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me. Then I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill, For I thought I had everything to do my Master's will.

As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer and I just had to put that in, For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf; Song and Praise were hanging near so I just helped myself.

Then, I said to the Angel, "Now how much do I owe?" He just smiled and said, "Just take them everywhere you go". Again, I smiled at him and said, "How much do I really owe?" He smiled again and, "My child, Jesus paid your bill a long, long time ago.

God Bless and Be With Our Families through the times and troubles that we are in today.
