We’re ‘Sweeter’ When We SMILE!

A Smile is a cheer, to you and to me;
The cost is nothing, it’s given free.

It comforts the weary, and gladdens the sad;
Consoles those in trouble, good or bad

To rich and to poor, beggar or thief
it’s free to all, of any belief.

A natural gesture of young and of old;
cheers on the faint, and disarms the bold.

Unlike most blessings for which we pray;
It’s one thing we keep, when we give it away!

Sometime …Somewhere

You gave on the way a pleasant smile,
and thought no more about it.
It cheered a life that had been dark the while,
which might have been wrecked without it.
And so for that smile that was given there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You spoke one day a cheering word,
and passed to other duties.
It cheered a heart; new promise stirred,
and painted a life with beauties.
And so for that word of golden cheer,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You lent a hand to a fallen one,
a lift in love was given.
You saved a soul when hope was gone,
and helped him on toward heaven.
And so for that help you proffered there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

My prayer today is that I will at ‘sometime’ arrive at ‘somewhere’ and that it will be really, really crowded, and that I will see you there as well!
