A Bulletin And A Smile
A BULLETIN AND A SMILE
A bulletin and a smile--it may not seem like much,
But when she gave them to you, it was a special touch.
A voice that said, “Good morning,” expecting you to say
A happy greeting to her whene’er you came her way.
One night she lay there sleeping, and saw another face,
A smile in heaven to greet her, for she was saved by grace.
I wonder if Christ met her with a bulletin in hand--
The program for her future there in that promised land.
I know that Jesus met her with a smile and open arms,
To welcome her to heaven, now safe from all earth’s harms.
I know He paid attention to the family she raised
Who gave their lives to serve Him, to lift His name in praise.
We’ll miss her in our service, but glad she’s dwelling where
There’s never any heartache, and never any care.
A bulletin and a smile--they stay right there to be
A testimony of her for everyone to see.
But more important to you is knowing you will see
This land she now has gone to for all eternity.
Accept Him as your Savior, whom this lady loved and knew,
And everything He came for when He died for me and you.
Written in memory of Dorothy Jonas
