One More Day

Yesterday I was driving home alone from dropping Andrew and Tim at EFY.  I had 4+ hours to myself in the car.  I listened to the radio a lot.  I heard the song, One More Day by Diamond Rio.
The lyric of the chorus is this:
One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more day with you.

I thought about how I wished that many times in the past almost 20 years.  I also know that even if such a wish was granted, it would never be enough time and I would wish for it all over again.  I felt that pain of losing my mom all over again.  Now, however, I wish for that one more day not for myself but for my dad.

Then I recognized that the plan of salvation is perfect.  Not only will I get that "one more day" but I will have eternity to spend with my mom and the rest of my family.

I am human and subject to human emotions with my limited scope of eternity.  After nearly 20 years it still hurts sometimes.  I knew it would.  After all, if I didn't love so deeply, it wouldn't hurt so much.  I'll take the hurt because I know the love.
