heaven's grocery store

As I was walking down life's highway many years ago, I came upon a sign that read
Heaven's 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...

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 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."

Life is really like a supermarket isn't it?

Often than not, you go into the store, money given by mum to buy all the necessities for the kitchen. The wise and the focused will pick up the items and dinner will always be a pleasure. But those who get waylaid and distracted by the special offers and promotions would end up with superficially useless things and an empty stomach
