Heaven’s Grocery Store

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 hope

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 Friendship for

Friendship 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.”

Never Give Up – Inspirational Poem

Never Give Up


never give up

In that dark lonesome place
between a dream dreamed
and a dream realized,

I have left a little light for you
so you will know that someone cares
and believes in your dream.

Just where it becomes the most dark
and difficult to find your way,
there is the light I left for you.

It will light your way,
through the doubt, the confusion,
and the fears,

It will stay with you
all the way to the realization
of your dream.

And when your dream has come true,
please go back to that darkest place
where you have been,

And set the little light there to give heart
to the next sweet soul that braves the path
to his or her dreams.

Dreamers are the architects of greatness.
There wisdom lies within their souls.
Dream long enough and hard enough
and your dream can be attained.
