Heaven’s Grocery Store

As I was walking down life’s
highway many years ago
I came upon a sign that read
Heaven’s Grocery Store.

When I got a little closer
the doors swung open wide
And when I came to myself
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.”

Everything a human needed
was in that grocery store.
And what you could not carry
You could come back for more.

First I got some Patience. Love was in that same row.
Further down was 
you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of  Wisdom
Faith a bag or two
Charity of course,
I would need some of that too.

I couldn’t miss the Holy Ghost
for He was all over the place
And then some 
Strength and Courage
to help me run this race. 

My basket was getting full but
I remembered I needed 
And then I chose 
Salvation for
Salvation was for free. 
I tried to get enough of that
to do for you and me.

Then I started to the counter
to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything
to do the Master’s will. 

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

Peace and Joy were plentiful, 
the last things on the 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 smiled and said, “Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again I asked, “Really now, how much do I owe?” 
“My child,” he said, “Jesus paid your bill a long time ago.”
