Heaven’s Grocery Store

Written by: Ron DeMarco & Friend

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.

    I love this poem. My granny recites it sometimes at church functions and it always touches everyone’s soul. I’m actually going to give this poem as a gift today for someone’s bday.
