Hi there, you can now support Brand New Me financially? Send Money

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 dear, shop with care.”

Everything a human needed
Was in that grocery store
And what you couldn’t 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 wherever 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
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 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 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 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 dear,” he said, “God paid your bill
A long long time ago.”
