A Song...

Amber over at Goodnight Moon in hosting a link up of songs that you're feeling right now. Well, one song that you're feeling. It's hard for me to pick just one....but I did it.

The Man & I didn't get married that young and we haven't been married 15 years. There's some great stuff in this song though. I think marriage is a leap and in our year and half of marriage we've found a minefield or two as well as some storms. I don't think that's a bad thing. In the long run our marriage will be stronger and better because of them. We talk and work through the issues that come up. There are times that marriage is hard. It takes work. Hard work. I love the line that says that it's harder then we dreamed...but that's what the promise is for. It is. It binds us together and there is no one I'd rather be dancing through life with!

I was nineteen, you were twenty-one
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 fifteen 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 love's 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 shadowlands
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
