Heavens Grocery

I was going through some of my mother’s papers the other day and I found this little poem. My mom had kept it hidden away because she enjoyed it.  I have no idea where she got it, but when I read it, I enjoyed it also.  I wanted to share this with you.

Heaven’s Grocery Store

I was walking down life’s highway a long time ago,

When 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 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 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 down was Understanding, you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom, 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 remember I needed some Grace.

I didn’t forget Salvation for salvation there was free.

So I tried to get enough of that to save…both for 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 right into Sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf.

Song and Praises 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 smiled at him and said, “How much now do I really owe?”

He smiled again and said, “My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago.”

    This design is incredible! You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,

    how you presented it. Too cool!
