Annika Stenfjord  May we be consumed with the Creator of all things rather than with things created.

I'm going to miss the beautiful morning sunrises, people roaming barefoot in restaurants/grocery stores, easy public transportation, epic thunder storms, the mangoes and good coffee, people saying "keen," "heaps," and "legend," and little to no traffic. But mostly I will miss my wonderful friends.
Until next time βœˆοΈπŸ’ž (So glad there's a next time πŸ™ŒπŸΌ)

Present is living with your feet firmly grounded in reality, pale and uncertain as it may seem. Present is choosing to believe that your own life is worth investing deeply in, instead of waiting for some rare miracle or fairytale. Present means we understand that the here and now is sacred, sacramental, threaded through with divinity even in its plainness. Especially in its plainness. - Shauna Niequist

Sometimes you have so many extra reminders of goodness, faithfulness, beauty and favor and sometimes you have to fight to remind your soul of the reminders.

Overwhelmed.
Honestly- there wouldn't be enough words to describe how thankful I am for these people so I will spare you the lengthy caption. But what a kindness and favo(u)r my Father has shown me to so quickly bring family across the globe.

The "Wintergardens." It's 80+ degrees and the sunflowers in here are blooming. πŸ€—πŸŒ» #Summergardens

Obligatory: I went and saw the sunrise but did you really go if it isn't on insta? pic.

Yesterday topped the charts. Woke up at 3:30 to drive to the beach and watch the sunrise, explored the city, and ended with a game night (and donuts) with the most stellar group of people who began the day as strangers and ended as family.
No words for how thankful I am I get to be a part of this worldwide @hillsong family.
Also for the sake of not over-glamorizing life on social media: Until yesterday I rarely had left the house since Tuesday besides practicing driving on the other side of the road every once in a while. Update: I've turned on the windshield wipers SO many times but killed no one.

In case you were wondering how 2017 was going so far.... #newyearnewlife
2016 you absolutely shattered my expectations. You brought new revelations, tough learnings, the best community of people, new home(s), fresh seasons and a beautiful understanding of Kingdom culture. But if I must say, 2017 is already crushing it.

In honesty, there were so many times while at this school that I didn't believe this place could be the Lord's best for me. But the Lord ALWAYS brings his promises to fullness and the revelations of Jesus I have had throughout university are precious. Thankful for all of the incredible, kind, accepting souls I got to meet at this place and while at this place. Bless all of the professors that put up with my snacking in class and shout out to Patty for literally making my heart feel so full and mom-ing me when I needed someone to tell me I was worthwhile. πŸŽ“πŸŽ‰πŸ““πŸ“š

P.S. For anyone that hasn't/doesn't go to CLU if you can guess who/what this statue is supposed to be of I will literally bake you cookies.

Today Lilah and Noah surprised me by making me a "tea party lunch." What kind of kiddos come up with this stuff?? Idk but I cried.
My heart is full πŸ’

If you need extra reasons to love on this girl today (in no particular order):
1. She chases Jesus like nobody's business
2. She eats large portions of unhealthy food with me after we talk about how healthy we are going to be (particularly breakfast foods)
3. Her heart is weirdly in sync with mine and her spirit is oddly in tune with everyone around her
4. Her skin is legitimately perfect
5. She posts FB status updates in a way that everyone actually appreciates
6. She was legitimately named after Ariel the mermaid
7. She puts the date on all of her Instagram posts
8. It's her birthday people! πŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’₯πŸ’•πŸ˜πŸ‘‘πŸ©πŸ°2️⃣2️⃣
