Heaven’s Grocery Store

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 found myself 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 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, “God paid your bill a long, long time ago.”
