Celebrate Jesus!

I’m winding down after a very busy week. Twelve hours a day by the computer is the norm. Maybe it sounds crazy to you, but living alone as I do, it’s company for me. If you can work on something you love, than work becomes fun and not an obligation or a burden. For me to write stories and lessons is fun.

Cristina has made a series of flash-card pictures to inspire children to memorize Psalm 23. As soon as I get them uploaded on my Royal Palm World Ministry page you will get a link. I hope you have children in your life you can share it with.

Here is a cutie-pie in my life that this week has celebrated 100 days of school in Kindergarten. This picture is special to me because it reminds me of the fun we had last summer when she visited and we went to Build-A-Bear and she picked her pink bear.

Memories are made to be kept and cherished. This is such a happy memory.  Now I have to go back to work so I can get everything ready to publish Psalm 23. You know I work in Spanish, but some of it will be in English, because I want Sarah and her brother and sisters to be in on the fun of memorizing Psalm 23.

I grew up with Psalm 23:1. Every meal, after saying grace, we added: “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.” (In Spanish or Swedish, depending on where we were at the time. English I learned much later.) Oh, so wonderful to have the Lord as our shepherd. I have been singing in my heart all morning celebrating Jesus.

Will you celebrate Jesus with me? If children can celebrate being in school for 100 days, how big of a celebration can we do because we have the Lord with us every day. Every day is a day of celebration. How I love Jesus! How great to celebrate him.

We used to sing a chorus in Peru, “Si no fuera por el Señor, ¿quién fuera yo?” (If it wasn’t for the Lord, who would I be?). I cannot imagine my life without Jesus. If you don’t know the Lord Jesus, or you don’t have a close relationship with him, I hope you will open your heart to him and receive him as your Lord and Savior. He gave his life for you. He took our sins upon himself on the cross, so we could be made free and have a relationship with God. The best is yet to come. We are going to spend eternity with him.

Let’s celebrate! Let’s celebrate Jesus!

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.
