Cleric's Weapon of Choice

Just looking for some advice and assistance on what to give my Elven Life Cleric as a main weapon. Right now she has a mace and a shield +1. I can build a Mace of Smashing (2d6) or a Mace +1 (1d6 +1). The Mace of Smashing seems like the better choice but am I going to be disadvantaged because it isn't magical? It seems like these are the only two options. Anyone have a suggestion or a better alternative?

Elves are racially proficient in longswords and shortswords. Have you considered that?

The Mace of Smashing does look interesting, and it has a "Magical" tag, so in theory there should be no problem with it. However. check if your cleric's To Hit is high enough, it usually isn't as high as that of fighters and paladins, so having +1 or better yet +2 weapon might be preferable for them.
