Sweden in my Heart 4

My grandmother Edit, on Dad’d side, loved flowers. Maybe my other grandmother, Signe,  did too. I don’t know. When I was old enough to appreciate her more she was very sick. I spent my growing up years in Chile and Peru so I had very little contact with my grandmothers.

In my grandmother Edit’s las year of life I studied at a Mission School in the city of Orebro and could visit her. The entire window side of her room was filled with flowers. In her last weeks of life my cousins and I took turns sleeping at her place. That’s how I know about the flowers.

My sister Agneta must have inherited her love for flowers. Summer is gone but some of the flowers are still blooming. Here are some samples. Enjoy!

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.
