The Real Beauty

This weekend we are thinking of mothers and praising them for their amazing work. I just have to look at my daughter and see all the hours and effort she puts in to raise her children. My prayer for her is that she will be a Proverbs 31 kind of women. Reading the description given there can be a little discouraging for some, but just go down to verse 30 and see what really matters.

Proverbs 31:30
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

What counts is that you fear the Lord. And that goes for mothers and fathers and for everyone!

I have been busy all day writing in Spanish the study I posted for Mother’s Day last year on this blog. Now it’s time to get ready for a dance recital with Brianna so let me give you a link that my son-in-law gave me yesterday. It’s a testimony of a remarkable woman, a brave woman. Watch it and see if you agree with me.

If you are a mother, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

To all my other blogger friends, have a great weekend and if you get to spend it with your mother, you are blessed. My mother has already reached her final destination. I praise God that I had a godly mother.

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.
