My Tree on May Three

I had an idea this year to keep a photo diary of the tree I see from my window. It was interesting to follow it from the dead branches, where the little winter birds perched, to see it come alive as Spring made its way to The Ozarks. That’s where I live. It’s not really my tree, but because of the way it’s situated, I’m probably the one who enjoys it the most!

Then this morning the tree was crying. Old Man Winter does not want to leave its grip. In Arkansas, south of “The Tree,” they had snow for the first time for 194 years!

It’s been kind of fun to have snow falling all day. I could enjoy it through the window at my work space. I’m waiting for the newscast so I can give you some of the records. It’s always interesting with records.

Today has been the coolest afternoon ever in Springfield and we’ve had the most snow on this day. The temperature is 36 degrees F when it should be 70!

Historic for Springfield to have snow on May 3rd.

In two more weeks I’m going to be in a totally different climate. It’s nice to know that I have friends waiting for me there. One of my friends says that he is not going to miss the reunion even if it rains rocks, and even if he’s dead he doesn’t want to miss it. The reunion is on May 25th in the afternoon.

“See” you tomorrow, if I’m not snowed in!


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.
