A Lasting Memory

I have something beautiful to take home from this trip to my country of birth. Dad and Mary have been working hard on the loom and I will enjoy the fruit of that labor when I get home. Old bed-sheets, cut into strips and woven on the loom will grace the floor in my living room. They made me a throw-rug of happy, bright colors I picked myself. Those color will brighten my days and they make a lasting memory.

Throw-rug.Another memory is fun guessing game I made with my brother Lasse’s tea-cup. Did you see the cup? Did you make a guess about what was in it?


Think again! Some thought it was frozen ice, others thought it might be plastic wrap. That was close. This is the answer.


We had a pastry for dessert, made in aluminum cups. While we were talking my brother started straightening out his cup, making it a very smooth surface. And it fit right into the tea-cup! Who would have guessed such a thing!

Let me leave you today with the Butterfly Verse: Psalm 17:8.

Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings

May you make a happy, lasting memory today.

Those are the highlights of life!


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.
