The Day After

Preparations. Anticipation. Excitement. All of it leading up to the yearly celebration of the birth of our Savior. We had what I would call a “quiet” celebration. We read the Christmas story and had the gift-giving on Christmas Eve. That way we could concentrate on going to church on Christmas day. The kids behaved. Now we have a week of Christmas break ahead of us. I will be staying with them, doing some baby-sitting so their mom can get some of her weekly work done.

With the children surrounding me, talking “miles” an hour, I have not been able to pick up inspiration for writing. I guess it will come back as things get back to normal.

I will have a little picture show of the youngest, Sarah, three going on four. She showed big signs of being an organized person.


What did this little girl do?  She stacked her presents! While her siblings were excitedly opening their presents, she was busy stacking! “Look, I stacked mine!” she said. Her favorite present on the top–a Veggie Tales Bible Story Book. “And I have my own Bible!”

So, life goes on! I hope I will feel more inspired tomorrow.


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.
