Driving home from a Cracker Barrel dinner (brought to us courtesy of generous Mom and Dad) tonight, and the mackerdoodle riding in Papa’s truck with Nana and Papa (a must do for each trip) Jonathan and I were able to hear an entire song on the radio and the song we heard was written apparently about us. Jonathan was 20 and I was 19 when we got engaged, and we’ve been married 15 years. We didn’t have the wisdom to get rings at a pawn shop (good idea!) but marriage was certainly harder than we thought it would be.
15 (and a half) years later I can’t imagine dancing in minefields and sailing the storms with anyone else but my Jonathan.
I’m embedding the whole song, but my favorite part is:
So when I lose my way, find me
When I lose loves chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith
to 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
