Heaven's Grocery Store

I was walking down life's 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.

When I came to myself, I was standing just inside.

I saw a host of angels. They were standing everywhere.

One handed me a basket and said, "My child, please shop with care".

Further down was UNDERSTANDING, you needed it wherever you go.

I got a box or two of WISDOM, a bag or two of FAITH.

I just couldn't miss the HOLY SPIRIT, for He 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 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 wind up the aisle I saw PRAYER and I just had to put that in.

For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful; they were on the last shelf.

SONGS and PRAISES were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel, "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 owe?"

He smiled again and said......
