God's Smile
Bob Moody

Short of stature but tall in faith
Unknown by the world
But known by God
She dwelt among us for just a while
This woman with God's Smile

Never an angry word did we hear her speak
When hurt she would only bless
When offended she would only forgive
It was as if her soul was tuned to God's dial
This woman with God's Smile

No children did she ever bear
Yet she mothered too many to count
With her kindness and her love
She always went the extra mile
This woman with God's Smile

She knew the secret of being content
She faced adversity with her weapons
The Bible, faith and prayer
She persevered in every trial
This woman with God's Smile

We will miss this woman of God
We will miss her joy
We will miss her love
But now she lives in heavenly style
Sharon-the woman with God's Smile

Don't Quit
by John Greenleaf Whittier

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is strange with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure comes about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow—
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell just how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit—
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
