Dancing in The Minefield

Chris and I constantly find ourselves in a state of hilarity. Our entire marriage (all year and a half of it!) has been filled with one funny adventure..after another. I use the words " funny adventure" because the actual phrase I really want to use would get my mouth washed out with soap :)

I'm often reminded of the not so classy saying "If the trailer's rockin..don't come-a-knockin!" Well, we live in an apartment...But you get the gist. The "trailer is rockin" due to craziness of Anyway.....
*Awkward pause inserted here*

I won't bore you with the laundry list of everything that is happening in our lives right now..But here are some highlights:

Ben is walkin. Talkin. Eatin' peanut butter sandwiches, and has figured out how to unbuckle his carseat. It's hilarious. I love it. I want it to stop. He can't grow up this fast!

We were going to buy a didn't work out. I didn't realize it was going to be such an emotional experience. I've been eating A LOT of ice cream to keep the emotions/anger at the housing market at bay :)

We will be moving again this Summer. Don't worry, we'll still be in Maitland! Just can't stay in our apartment. It's been rented by someone else.

Chris's sweet, sweet Grandmother has been in and out of the hospital with health problems. Please keep her in your prayers. My brother in law and sister are doing wonderful and feel very blessed that my brother in law is safe and sound.

In honor of the craziness, and Chris being a bomb guy, I'd like to share A song that always leaves me with a smile, by Andrew Peterson.

Dancing in The Minefields

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
