Three wonderful years

It’s been a full three years since Jeannette and I said “I DO!!” to each other on a very hot summer day in Garden City, Georgia! Three wonderful years with my precious wife. I won’t embarrass her too much, so I won’t write too much about her, but I want to mention how special she is to me. It’s a privilege and a joy to spend every day with her. We thought we knew each other really well three years, and to some extent we did, but today we know each other even better, because of the choices we’ve made. We have allowed each other to see and know both the good, the bad, and the really ugly. We are journeying together getting to know God and ourselves better. And what a fascinating journey it is. I’m amazed that Jeannette knows me so well, and knows my faults and weaknesses, and yet chooses to forgive and love me. It’s beyond me what I did to deserve my wonderful wife. God is good, and I see his goodness displayed every day in Jeannette’s love for me. 

Now we’ve moved our lives from Kiev, Ukraine, Eastern Europe to Marietta, Georgia, USA, and it’s quite a big change not just in terms of location, but in any other way as well. But two things I know for sure: God is good all the time, and Jeannette continues to love me in ways that go beyond my wildest dreams!

Happy anniversary to us – I’m looking forward to a new year with Jeannette!

Happy birthday LEGO!

Today it’s 50 years ago that Ole Kirk Christiansen came up with the greatest Danish product in history – LEGO! Everybody loves LEGO bricks and kids play with them all over the world. Kirk Christiansen himself came up with the name LEGO which is a fusion of the two Danish words “LEg GOdt” (play well). So happy birthday, LEGO, and if you want to read more about the history of this wonderful toy, you can click here.

And on this great Danish day it seems appropriate to also celebrate what happened yesterday. Denmark beat Croatia in the final in the European Handball Championship for men. I saw the game online, and more than 2 million Danes saw the game on tv (and bear in mind that there are only 5,5 million Danes all in all…!). What a rush sports gives. A rush that you just can’t understand if you’re either not into sports, or you are not truly passionate about it. I allow myself to get really into sports, especially football, so I’ve had tears of joy and tears of sorrow in my eyes during and after various games. And I’m not planning on growing out if, even though I just turned 31:-)

Torben – who is going to Tbilisi, Georgia tomorrow where the weather experts talk about temperatures of -22 Celsius (-8 Fahrenheit) and snow the next few days while I’m there….brrrr……!
