The Dance {#FMFParty}

There is a Garth Brooks song that came out in 1990 “The Dance.” It is a song my husband picked out for us after a breakup, when he was trying to reconcile with me.  It’s still appropriate because we were married, divorced and through the grace of God reconciled and have been married for sixteen and a half years.

I remember dancing with Him in my parents front yard to the radio playing.  I really was just a kid at the time.  If someone would have told me all that we would walk through together, I would never have believed it.  Our life together has been a dance, but it is one that I would not have missed. We have three beautiful children and grandchildren.

If you haven’t heard it, you can hear His story behind it and the song at :

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.

  1. Jackie, what a great post.That song always moves me. I haven’t heard it in years. Our relationships with our husbands are like a dance, aren’t they? Learning how to move together, to follow and to love well. How to be in sync with each other and with God to make beautiful movement.

    Stopping by from FMF.

    I have loved reading everyone’s posts about dance and what it means to them. I think life is like a dance, but we have to choose to join in or sit this one out. Oh the things that we miss when we sit out!

  4. It’s a beautiful song.

    Barbara and I were married in 2002, divorced in 2003, and remarried in 2004 (in a helicopter over the Las Vegas strip, at night, by a Catholic priest who’d gotten special dispensation from the Archbishop.

    And I did not know this…Barbara was only going to remarry me if a priest would show up. Otherwise, no dice. And I didn’t know we’d gotten a priest until he showed up at McCarran Field.

    Miracles, anyone?

    That is one of my Dave songs. Can’t believe I didn’t even think of it. Visiting from FMF where I’m parked in the #6 spot.
