Dancing in the Minefields

Aug 12, 2000
One of my favorite days.
It was the day I married my best friend.
Became a wife.
Started a new life with the man God chose for me.

Over the last decade we had been learning what it means to truly love one another.
It hasn't always been a field of daisies.
There have been wonderful times, yes oh so wonderful
there have also been times when I wasn't sure we'd find our way.
But I wouldn't trade a second of it for anything.

I am crazy in love with the boy I married
more so than I ever dreamed possible a decade ago.
I can't believe how blessed I am to walk through this life with him
or rather dance....
Happy 10th Anniversary to the man who still melts my heart.

Dancing in the Minefields
by Andrew Peterson

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 got the rings for forty each
From a pawn shop down the road
We said our vows and took the leap
Now fifteen years ago

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

Well, "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 storms
This is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for
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


  1. Ohhhhh...love this. What a beautiful tribute to your best friend and life partner. May God bless you with many more wonderful years together!

  2. Happy Anniversary Sara! I love that song you shared with us... Don't you just love being married?!!

  3. Just beautiful Sara. Isn't it the best when you know you wouldn't change one second of your life together. Good times and hard - it really is about the journey. May the next 10 years be equally as wondrous. Blessings on you both :)

  4. lovely. happy (late) anniversary.

    yes, marriage is harder than we imagined. i've often asked michael if he would have run when he saw me walking down the isle if he'd known all that was ahead... he says, "Never."

    may God bless, keep you, make his face to shine upon you, and give you peace for the next 10, 20,30, 40, 50+ years!

  5. happy very belated anniversary!
