Angel The Church Mouse: Mother's Day

RUSHVILLE — Hi, all you kind folks in Readership Land,

Mercy! Here it is May. What a busy, busy month. Take time out for a cup of tea/coffee and cookies (Yes!)

In my scrampin’ about I came across a yellowed piece of paper and on reading it thought--”Mother’s Day”--Grocery List--Perfect.

Shop in Heaven’s Grocery Store

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 needed was in that 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 it was all over the place.

I stopped to get some strength and courage to help me run the race.

By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some grace.

I didn’t forget salvation, for salvation that 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 Master’s 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.

Then, I said “Now how much do I owe?”

He just smiled and said, “Just take them everywhere you go.”

“How much do I really owe?”

He smiled and said, “My child, Jesus paid your bill a long time ago.”

“Her children rise up and call her blessed.” Proverbs 31: 28 NKJV  

“Happy Mother’s Day”

Until the next time.

Blessings, Angel The Church Mouse
