I received this email from a friend of mine and really liked it. I thought it would be something nice to share with Easter coming up and all. =]
“As I was walking down life’s highway many years ago,
I came upon a sign that read “Heaven’s Grocery Store”.
When I got a little closer, the doors swung 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 human needed was inside that grocery store
and 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 everywhere you go.
I got a box or two of Wisdom and Faith a bag or two
and Charity, of course, I would need some of that too.
I couldn’t miss The Holy Ghost, it was all over the place.
And then some Strength 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 free.
(I tried to get enough of that to do for you and me.)
Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything to do the master’s will.
As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayer and put that in,
For I know when I stepped outside, I would run 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, “now how much do I owe?”
He smiled and said, “just take them everywhere you go”.
Again I asked, “really now, how much do I owe?”
“My child” he said, “Jesus paid your bill a long, long time ago. “
I hope you all have a great Easter weekend!
