Just One More...

I'm the kind of traveler who gets everything organized, compartmentalized, and neatly packed in my suitcase. Then just before I head out the door, I inevitably run upstairs to get just one more shirt in case my destination and activities are hotter or colder or dressier or more casual than I anticipated. While my suitcase is still parked upright by the door, I unzip it just enough to stuff that one more shirt inside. I always have to laugh when I arrive and open my suitcase to find that scrunched up and wrinkly "just one more" shirt wedged in the corner.... Go ahead. You can laugh, too!

I guess I'm a JUST ONE MORE kind of person.
I usually want JUST ONE MORE...
...hug ...kiss ...prayer ...laugh ...cookie of wine

Do you find yourself wanting JUST ONE MORE...
...refill? ...bite? ...minute? ...snooze? off? light? ...bonus check?

My mother died when she was only 55 years old. I was 18.

I made a promise to myself as I watched her suffer through her illness that I would always try to be intentional in my living. My goal was to not put off to "someday" anything my heart wanted to do. I decided then that when an opportunity came up that I was excited but unsure about, I'd ask myself -- would I go for it if I knew for certain I had JUST ONE MORE year to live?

✝️ Throughout this Easter Season, the Readings allow us to witness Jesus teaching His disciples the truth of who He is and how to live in His love.
Jesus said, "Love one another as I have loved you."

Such a simple little sentence.

He calls me friend. He chose me. He loves me.

He commands me to choose to love the same as Him.

Yet, how can I possibly love like Jesus? HE IS LOVE!

How much more do I need to love others so that it is as He has loved me?

I think the answer will always be JUST MORE.

So, yeah..........I say go for JUST ONE MORE... more hug more chat more smile more I love you more wave goodbye more kiss goodnight more trip to the beach more walk on the trail more lunch with a friend more drive with Grandpa more dinner at Grandma's more funny story to share more peek at the baby sleeping more cup of coffee with Mama more ice cold beer with Daddy more prayer for the sick & needy more minute relaxing on the porch more dance before we call it a night more early morning to witness the sunrise more road trip to spend time with family & friends more day to share the love of The One who first loved us
