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

I saw a host of

They were
standing everywhere

One handed me a

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

Love was in that
same row.

Further down was

you need that
everywhere you go.

I got a box or
two of Wisdom

and Faith a bag
or two.

And Charity of

I would need some
of that too.

I couldn't miss
the Holy Ghost

It was all over
the place.

And then some

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

I tried to get
enough of that to do

for you and me.

Then I started to
the counter

to pay my grocery

For I thought I
had everything

to do the Masters

As I went up the

I saw Prayer and
put that in,

For I knew when I
stepped outside

I would run into

Peace and Joy
were plentiful,

the last things
on the shelf.

Song and Praise
were hanging near

so I just helped

Then I said to
the angel

"Now how much do
I owe?"

He smiled and

"Just take them
everywhere you go."

Again I asked
"Really now,

How much do I

"My child" he
said, "God paid your bill

a long long time

What a beautiful thought, the ending is brilliant.

It sums up that God really does love us all, he may have seemed so far away, but he was closer than we ever knew and even closer now



Whoever stole the Sun, put it back and we'll drop all the charges!
