Heavens 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 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; He 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, 'God paid your bill a long long time ago.'
