Heaven's Grocery Store....

A friend of mine found this little sheet of paper while we were teaching at VBS last week...it was a small part of a tract..I loved it and wanted to share..


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.
And one angel said,"
My child, shop with care."

Everything a Christian needs
was in the grocery store.
And all you couldn't carry you
could come back the next day 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 He was all over the place.

I stopped to get some 
strength & courage
to help me run the race.
But 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 you and me.

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

As I went up the aisle, I saw 
prayer and
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 on the last shelf.
Song and praises were hanging near
so I just helped myself.

I asked,
How much do I owe?
He just smiled and said,
just take them everywhere you go.

Then I said, How much do I really owe?
He smiled and said,
My child, Jesus paid your bill
a long time ago.
