Heavens Grocery Store
By Author Unknown 2005/2011

As I was walking down life's highway
many years ago or more
I came upon a sign that read
Heavens Grocery Store

When I got a little closer
the doors swung open wide
Before I could control myself
I was standing full 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 needs
was in that grocery store
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 anywhere you go

I grabbed a box of Wisdom
plus Faith, a bag or two
And Charity of course
I'd need some of that too

I couldn't miss the Holy Ghost
It was all over the place
Loaded Strength and Courage
Then remembered I needed Grace

And then I chose Salvation
Salvation was for free
I tried to get enough of that
to do for you and me

I started to the counter
to pay my grocery bill
I thought I had everything
to do the Masters will

As I went up the aisle
I saw Prayer and put that in
Knowing when I stepped outside
I'd run right 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
"How much do I owe"
He smiled and said
"Just take them, everywhere you go"

Again I asked "No, Really,
How much do I owe?"
"My child" he said, "God paid your bill
a long, long, time ago"

Out the door to Glory
Feeling like I be a Boss
Until someone called me
"Don't forget your Cross"

Funny thing about all that stuff
The load was feather light
I didn't even need a bag
Fit in my heart just right
