One day I saw a sign that read "Heaven's Grocery Store." As I got a little closer, the door came open and 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 could not carry - you could come back the next day for more. First I got some Patmce, Love was in the same row. Further down was Understanding, -you need that every- where you go. I got a box or two of grm/orn, 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 By then my basket was getting full, but I remember 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 towards the counter to pay my grocery bill For I thought I had everything to do my Master's will. As I went up to 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 so plentififl,'as 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 smiles and said, "Just take them everywhere you go...  "How much do I really owe?" He just smiled again and said, "My Child, Jesus Paid your bill a long time ago." Lorine Woody Contn'buted by a "Caring Citizen" of Mt. Pulaski... Terrie A. Garvey, 52, of Mt.

Sere Cr is the son of Steve and Angie Mizeur of Cantrall. A big deci- net sion as to who could have that privilege? His parents and grand- parents decided to have former area resident, Gene Pankey, do the honors. Gene owns and cuts hair at the Reflection Design Inc. located at 314 East Adams Street in Springfield. Gene has been the barber for my son in law, Joe Jannazzo for a long time. Joe and Llnda's Son, Joe Jr., also had his first hair cut at Reflections Design Inc. in 1977. Everyone was well pleased with the end results of the first haircut. The picture taken at Seve's haircut is worth more than a thousand words. On theLighter Side-Alice claimed that she and Henry never took time to actually look into each other's eyes. So they decided to do just that when they got into bed. One night Alice suddenly said, "We forgot to look at each other." Sleepily Henry asked, "Don't you think I know what you look like by now? .... OK she said, "What do I look like?" "You're gorgeous, beautiful, and sexy." He replied. "You looked ... You looked," she said." Food for Thought- Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live." NEWS&NOTES CHESTNUT GEO CENTER MOVIES in the Park Saturday July 21 and Saturday August 18 at dusk.

On those really hot days, here's a warning from the Aerosol Industry... Aerosol containers in automobiles can rupture and expel con- tents. If interior tempera- tures in automobiles exceed 110-degrees the temperature reaches a critical level. At that point, the interior of dosed aerosol cans may exceed 130F and have actu- ally exploded and blown out car windows. Needless to say, the danger is even greater if you're in the car when it happens.
