Dancing In the Mindfields

Michael and I celebrated a huge milestone on Thursday...Our 10 year wedding anniversary. I have to almost laugh out loud at the fact that when we said I do some people thought that we wouldn't make it 6 months more less 10 years. We give all credit and glory to Papa God who held us together in some of the roughest times one could imagine. But we KNOW His promises are true and we are meant to be a pair because we found His face in the face of addiction, abuse, adultery, lies, chaos and so much more. I thank Papa everyday for Michael he is hard working, loving, compassionate, he is my lover, and my very best friend. I look forward to many more memories and years together.

I heard this song today and I was thinking about using it for whenever we renew our vows (soon we hope). I changed up some of the words to fit our story...but you can find the "real" ones here. I hope you enjoy it. This one really speaks to what Michael and I have experienced. With God at the center of our marriage we have gone so far and His favor and blessing are really showing through. So I believe what Papa has done for us is a testimony to a Living, Miracle working, mountain moving God!

I was seventeen, you were twenty
The year we got engaged
Everyone said we were much too young
But we did it anyway

We bought our rings for forty each
From a pawn shop down the road
We made our vows and took the leap
Now ten years ago

We went dancing in the minefields
We went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

"I do" are the two most famous last words
The beginning of the end
But to lose your life for another I've heard
Is a good place to begin'
Cause the only way to find your life
Is to lay your own life down
And I believe it's an easy price
For the life that we have found

And we're dancing in the minefields
We're sailing in the storm
This is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

So when I lose my way, find me
When I loose loves chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith, till the end of all my days
When I forget my name, remind me

'Cause we bear the light of the Son of Man
So there's nothing left to fear
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 all this chaos, baby, I can dance with you
