The Gift of Peace

In this season of giving, when we look back and remember the Great Giver. I will highlight some of his great gifts to us. The gift for this day is inspired by a greeting card I received from my good friend Clemencia. Thus far it’s my favorite one (I’ve added the verse).

Jesus, the Prince of Peace, came to give us his peace. Ponder this during the coming days, when you might be stressed by Christmas preparations. Stress and anxiety do not come from him. And not hurt and pain, which I’m battling now. I would like to write some more but my fingers are so stiff and hurting so bad that I will have to just sit back and look at an unfinished blog and let you fill in the blanks. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

With the peace of Jesus I will make this a day of overcoming pain! Let the peace of God overtake you and engulf you. Can you feel his loving arms surrounding you? “Peace, peace… wonderful peace!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
