Perfect Timing

Leaving the house to do some errands today, and as I backed out of the garage to the street I realized there was something wrong. I had a flat! There I was, in the middle of the street, and only three of the tires had air in them. What would I do?
Then who shows up? The neighbor across the street whom I hadn’t seen for months! It turns out he has to travel for work and sometimes is away for up to two months at a time. And there he was, at the right time, outside the house, when I needed help. He had an air compressor so he filled air into my tire and I could drive to a shop to get it fixed. The problem was a tack.

How good and loving is my heavenly Father! True to his Word, he takes care of widows.
Two days ago I had another experience of perfect timing. My granddaughter Lana, who some days ago had a seizure, needed to see a neurologist; but it can take months to get an appointment. I was with my daughter and her family to celebrate her birthday together with her brother David. Can you believe they then called from the doctor saying they had received a cancellation and Lana could have the appointment?

Why the perfect timing? Because I was there and could lend a helping hand! She could not sleep more than five hours the night before the tests, so I had to keep her wake until midnight. In the end it turns out that I fell asleep and she had to wake me up! I felt blessed to be there at the right time. (The doctor said there is no cause for concern about the seizure. All the tests came back negative. Thanks to those who have prayed for Lana.)
As you know, I’m a story-teller. In today’s story, a captain of a ship happened to be at the right time at the right place to help an orphan boy and make him a sailor. What the captain did for the boy was nothing compared to what the boy did for the captain. The captain might have given the boy food and shelter, but the boy showed the captain the way to Jesus!

I love the picture my Peruvian friend Cristina has made of the little sailor.
God can send people in our way and he can send us on assignments. I love it!

I’ve had a busy day. It takes a day to get the story published. Now I’m going to sit back and listen to the next President of the United States. At least that’s what Republicans hope for. Mitt Romney is now going to accept the nomination at the Convention in Tampa.

There are not many options. It will either be Obama or Romney.

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.
