Beauty in the Clouds

I’ve come full circle. Now I’m home again, with bags to unpack and clothes to wash, new time to get used to, and errands to run. I have to go to the Post Office to get all my saved-up mail, I have to refill my medications, I need a hair-cut, I have to buy food. All of this I hope to do tomorrow, as in Monday, because after that we are getting a winter blast!

For now, let me  show you some of the beauty I enjoyed in the clouds, or should I say from above the clouds. I had window seats so I could take these pictures. And the weather was perfect!

From Berlin to Chicago

Waters above and below

Chicago is situated by one of the Great Lakes, the one that is totally within the borders of the United States. When I first saw Lake Michigan from above, I mistook it to be the ocean, then I remembered it was a lake. What a beautiful sight!

It was amazing to look out over this big city. I remember hearing years ago that more people live in Chicago than in all Sweden. This is the city where my brother Pepe started his “American” life. That’s where he found his bride, my very favorite sister-in-law.

More Next Year

Lord willing, next year there will be another story from Sweden. We hope Dad will be with us so we can celebrate his 95 years. That’s the plan. I pray God’s blessing over our planning!



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.
