The Good of A Smile
by Rosemond D. Ramsey


To determine the value of a smile is rather a difficult problem., I am sure. Who can tell of the good a smile will do in this world?

You drop a pebble into the ocean; as it strikes the water a circle is formed; then another and another, all becoming larger the while, reaching out into the wide expanse of water seemingly without end.

Just so I would liken a smile, God's gift within you, having no limit, no boundary line. God's gift within you sunshine from the heart. A sunshine from the heart. A sunshine which has brought happiness to the sad of heart in ages past, and will continue to do so and more, world without end. The smile is a receipt for happiness.

Not the smile of derision, of scorn or of hate, but the true smile from the heart given at the moment when most needed, when other hearts are sad, and this old world looks blue to them. Just such a smile as Christ gave to the little children ages ago, when He took them in His arms and told them stories and blessed them.

And so we could write volumes on the smiling heart, and yet never reach the final volume or estimate the far-reaching effect and endless joy it creates.

"How beautiful the face of those whose smile
Doth make God's sunshine in the heart of toil;
In low sick rooms, a presence of health;
The true rich folk in whom the poor have wealth.



Doesn't Cost A Cent
By Rolf Thelan


The thing that goes the farthest toward making life worth while,
That costs the least and does the most is just a pleasant smile;
The smile that bubbles from a heart that loves its fellow-men.
Will drive away the clouds of gloom and coax the sun again.
It's full of worth and goodness, too, with manly kindness blent;
It's worth a million dollars, and it doesn't cost a cent.

There is no room for sadness when we see a cheery smile.
It always has the same good look; it's never out of style.
It nerves us on to try again when failure makes us blue;
The dimples of encouragement are good for me and you.
It pays a higher interest, because it's merely lent;
It's worth a million dollars, and it doesn't cost a cent.


Life Worth While
D. W. Moore


One of the many essential things
That make our lives worth while'
(Tho' it cost the least of all)
Is a sweet and pleasant smile.

A smile thus bubbling from the heart
Of our friends or fellowmen,
Will drive the clouds of gloom away
And bring the sunshine again.

Its magic power, how great and good;
Like an arrow to the heart 'tis sent;
It's more valuable than silver or gold,
Yet it doesn't cost a cent.

The cup of love we so greatly admire,
And of which we so highly prize,
Would be, no doubt. In less demand
If it wasn't for constant smiles

We give aid to the sick, aged, and poor,
And their burdens we help sustain
With wistful looks and gentle smiles,
And yet, suffers the slightest pain.

When our smiles shall have all been spent
Let us hope that our reward shall be
Among the saints where the Saviour reigns.
He who still'd the waves of Galilee.
