As I was walking down life’s highway a while 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 back to myself, I found I was inside. I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere, once handed me an empty basket and said, “My child, shop all you can with care”. So first I got some Patience, Love was in the same row, further down was Understanding – you need that where ever you go.
I got a box of Wisdom, and a case filled with Faith, I just couldn’t miss the Ruach Ha Kodesh, for it was everywhere. As I went up the aisle, I saw Prayers for the sick. So I took a whole bunch, to help our friends in need. Then I came across the Tehillim book that Kind David wrote, I just had to put that in for I knew how important it was.
Peace and Joy were plentiful. They were on the last shelf. Songs and Praises to Ha’Shem were flying everywhere. I stopped to get some Strength and Courage to help me run this race, by then my basket was fully packed so I can do my Mizvot well. Then I started up to the counter to pay my grocery bill, for I thought I had everything to do Ha’Shems’ will.
Then I said to the angel, “How much do I owe?” He smiled and said to me, “Just use it wisely, wherever you go.”
