Heaven's 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 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 that grocery store.And all you couldn't carry then, you could come back for more.First, I got some PATIENCE. LOVE was in the same row.Further down was UNDERSTANDING, you need that everywhere you 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 run this race.By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some GRACE.I didn't forget SALVATION, for SALVATION was free,So I tried to get enough of that, to save both you and me.Then I started for the counter to pay my grocery bill,For I thought that I had everything, to do the MASTER's will.As I went up the aisle, I saw PRAYER. I just had to put that in, For I knew when I stepped outside, I would run right into sin.PEACE and JOY were plentiful, they were last upon 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 with you, everywhere you go."Again, I smiled and said, "How much do I really owe?" He said, "MY CHILD, JESUS PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO."
This was sent too me in an e-mail and I wanted to share it with all of you.
