Heaven's Grocery Store...

Monday, January 14, 2013

I was walking down life's highway a long time ago,
One day, I saw a sign that read

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 the grocery store
And if you couldn't carry them, you could come back for more.

First I got some patience.
Love was in the same row.
Farther down was understanding, you need that everywhere you go.
I got a box or two of wisdom,
A bag or two of faith,
I couldn't miss the Holy Ghost, for he was all over the place.
I stopped to get some strength and courage to help me run the race.
And though my basket was getting full, I remembered to get some 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 the counter to pay the 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 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 just smiled and said,
Just take that everywhere you go.
Again, I smiled at him and said,
How much do I really owe?
The angel smiled again and said,

I just sooo loved this poem. The first time I saw this in Papemelroti, I fell in love with it that I had to buy not just one but two or should I say three. It reminds me of my duties and obligations as a Christian.
