100-word ballroom dancing crash course OR: Make your marriage work

Marriage is a foxtrot. One of you is the slow… slow… and one of you is the quick-quick.

That’s how it should be. That’s what makes it a dance. That’s what lends rhythm to your days and your decisions. Celebrate your differing temperaments and traits by leaving them all on the dancefloor because opposites make magic.

When you step on each other’s toes, laugh (with, not at). Take a beat to find the beat. Find each other. The dance only works if you keep holding on. Maybe, dance barefoot. Humility ushers in the extraordinary presence, power and purposes of God.

(Kudos to Pam Ferreira for the foxtrot metaphor. Simply brilliant.)
