Lynn from The Vintage Nest let me borrow this poem from her blog. I loved it so much I wanted to share it with all of you. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you Lynn.

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 there inside.

I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere, One handed me a basket and said, "My child shop with care.
Everything I needed was in that grocery store
And all you couldn't carry, you could come back for more.
First, I got some patience, love was in the same row, Further down was understanding, you need that wherever you go.
I got a box or two of wisdom and 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 the race.
By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed 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 to the counter to pay my 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 right into sin.
Peace and joy were all 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 them everywhere you go."
Again, I smiled at him and said, "How much do I owe?" He smiled again and said, "My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago."
