    Showers of blessings

    Read this story, and
    Follow the recommendation at
    The end...

    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 Holy Ghost
    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
    Salvation for
    Salvation 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.'

    This poem has
    Been sent to you
    With love and for
    Blessings.

    It originated in
    The Netherlands
    And has been
    Around the world 9 times.

    The blessing has now
    Come to you and
    You will receive
    Showers of blessings!

    "Showers of Blessings" reminded me of my wife telling about her childhood. They lived in the country and attended a small country church. In the summer time they would have two weeks of nightly meetings. It was a very dry, no rain summer and this one night they sang "Showers of Blessings". It rained so hard going home on the dirt roads they slipped and slid down the big hill to their house in their old Model T Ford. But she said "everyone was happy, and it made a true believer out of me!". She was baptized in a pond on a neigbor's farm, when 11 or 12 years old.

    Hello Ray!! Enjoyed those books. Have even shared them. My middle boy is a very avid reader and he even picked up one of them. He thought it was rather "cool" than an aurthor signed a book to "me". Thanks again Ray.
