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 standing everywhere. One handed me a basket and said, “My child, shop with care.”
Everything a human needs was in this grocery store, and what you can not 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 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 – 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.
Then I chose Salvation for Salvation was free. I tried to get enough of that to do for you and me.
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 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 help helped myself.
Then I said to the angel “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 time ago!”
