Heaven’s Grocery Store

Another e-mail from my uncle in 2001 about heaven’s grocery store. Enjoy. A two minute read…….

Heaven’s Grocery Store

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 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 in 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 for 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 Masters will.

As I went up the aisle
I saw Prayer and put that in,
For I knew 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, “God paid your bill
a long long time ago.”

his poem has been sent to you
with love and for good luck.
It originated in the Netherlands
and has been around the world 9 times.

The luck has now come to you and
you will receive good luck in the mail
within six days of receiving this letter
providing you sent it out to someone else.

Do not send money as this message
has no price. Do not keep this letter
but send it on to someone who
needs good luck. Of course, good luck
is just another way of saying blessings.
