Heavens 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.
And 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”
Everything a Christian needed was in that Grocery Store.
And all you couldn’t carry you could sure come back for more.

First I got some patience. Love was in the same row.
Further down was understanding you need it wherever you may 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 on this race.
By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed Grace.
I didn’t forget Salvation, for Salvation that was free!.
So I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.

Then I started up to the corner to pay my bill.
For I thought I had everything to do my Father’s will.
But as I went up the aisle I saw Prayer and I just had to put that in.
Peace and Joy were plentiful; they were on the last shelf.
Song and Praise were hanging near, so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the Angel, “How much do I owe?”
He smiled and said, “just take your basket wherever you may go”.
Again I looked at him and said, “How much do I owe?”
He smiled again and said, “My friend, Jesus paid your bill long ago.”
