Dancing In The Minefields With My Love
Brent Minter showed me this song the other day. What an incredible song. There aren’t too many songs out there that can stir you like this one. If you are married, you might need a tissue for this one. Not because it’s sad by any means, but because it brings such life and joy.
While my wife and I haven’t hit any minefields in our relationship, we have definitely been through and are still going through the minefields of life. From looking for teaching jobs, completing major phases of our lives, going through family issues, losing good friends, being frustrated through our losses, and even the day to day game of life, we have certainly been through a few minefields together – and I’m sure there will be many more to come. If you haven’t guessed by one of my previous posts, I love my wife more than anything in this world. And I don’t mean that cheap infatuation type of love, but rather a deeply seeded respectful love for her that is difficult to explain in words. What is often difficult to explain in words, is often the easiest thing to trust and find rest in. There is true grace and joy found in giving yourself to someone else. Let this song be an encouragement to you and yours. I’ll finish this post with a quick few lines from the song:
So I’ll walk with you in the shadow lands
Till the shadows disappear
‘Cause He promised not to leave us
And his promises are true
So in the face of this chaos baby,
I can dance with you.
