I watched a music video this morning that is awesome and I wanted to share it - Andrew Peterson's, Dancing in the Minefields.
Wow! This song reminds me of many couples who have danced in the minefields, sailed in the storms, lived and are living through times that are harder than they ever dreamed they would live.
- A pastor and his wife, living for God no matter what.
- Two different husbands going through physical hardships and both wives sticking close and making the most of each day.
- My parents are the ultimate example for me. They married very young, at 16 and 17, had kids when they were still young, they brought us all up in the Christian faith, they had their own troubles but they stuck together. Are sticking together. Will forever stick together. That is one thing I can know because God is in the center of their lives. They've danced through their own minefields and have survived and have grown closer because of it.
Jim and I both dance in our minefield. Both struggle with some physical problems but are learning to cling together through it all.
I'm praying this Saturday will bind us closer together to the ones we love. Maybe even have take some time to cheer on another couple facing hardships. Praying for these couple friends of mine, that they will continue to dance, always together, through the storms that blow their way. Thank you for being an example when the world screams the answer - DIVORCE. Is hard to dance alone, for sure.
