Jumping Around the World!

I keep telling myself that "I will blog today". But then the day passes and fills up with paperwork, planning, visiting, and living, and another day goes by with blogging silence. 
Im fine with that, since Im having a tough time putting into words how the past month has felt. 
So today, I thought I would do a fun post! 
I shall call it "Jumping around the world!". Which you already know, since you probably clicked on the post title to get here in the first place. Moving on. 

You might have noticed that I took a LOT of jumping pictures while travelling. Im not sure how that started, but it just seemed to happen. Thankfully I have a husband who is patient and great at taking jumping pictures. Sometime I was even able to pursued him to jump for a picture too! 
So here you go, some pictures and excerpt of jumps around the world! 

That time I jumped and this kid snuck in to join me, and I didn't see him and I punched him in the face accidentally. Oops. Luckily he laughed it off!

Happy Anniversary!

3 years have passed already. 
How has it already been 3 years?! 
How has it only been 3 years! 

Andrew you have taught me so much about myself. 
You have shown me how to be better, to serve God more wholeheartedly, how to be more selfless and generous. 
We have grown and struggled with "you" and "me" and boundaries and walls, sin and joy. 
It has not been easy, but I feel as if we are in a new place now. As if we are more content to be one
I sink into you, you sink into me. 
We don't (always) fight it, we just are.

You surely didn't know what you were getting into, marrying me. But you are steadfast and loving, always praying for me and us. Your patience and strength give me strength. Your faith is beautiful and I love watching you step out more and more into Gods calling on your life. 

The past year was one of great adventures, many sights and much movement. I pray that the next one will find us sinking our roots more and more into each other. That we would learn, even more, that security doesn't come from a place or job or country or government. That Christ alone would be our security and that we would follow Him faithfully.

Happy Anniversary Andrew. 
You are my best friend, the best part of me and my favourite part of every day.
