The Grocery Stroe

As I was walking
Down life’s highway 
Many years ago

I came upon a
Sign that read

Heavens 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
Understanding,
You need that
Everywhere you go..

I got a box or
Two of Wisdom 
And Faith a bag
Or two.

And Charity of
Course
I would need some
Of that too..

I couldn’t miss
The Holy Ghost
It 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 Grace,

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 Masters
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, long time
Ago.’
