Pam’s Penny Candy


Long before there were Super Stores…

Shoppers purchased groceries and more at the mercantile or SEPTEMBER 2014 002general store.

The ‘Mom & Pop’ groceries stores offered basics and old-fashioned friendly service.

In my case, it is not a ‘Mom & Pop’ that I am remembering. It is an ‘Aunt & Uncle.’

My Aunt Dorothy Rice Ford & Uncle Alex Ford owned and operated ‘Rice’s Grocery,’following the death of her father.

Dwarfed in size to today’s Super Stores, it had ample penny candy variety. Making my selections easily occupied me while Mom and Dad shopped for our week’s groceries.

The Bible is not a Mom & Pop grocery or a Superstore.

It is a storehouse of wisdom.

Peer through the looking glass of Proverbs…

Choose a daily selection from its thirty-one chapters.

My favorite scripture passage is contained in chapter three.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding;
think about Him in all your ways,
and He will guide you on the right paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).”
