Thanksgiving in my Heart

I woke up this morning to a great reminder, about WHY I should be thankful. I have read it hundred of times but now it was the Aha Moment!  Thank you to my friend and former co-worker Vern Peterson for this reminder.

Give thanks

“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
–1 Thess 5:18

It is GOD’S WILL in Christ Jesus that we be thankful.

“ALWAYS giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” –Eph 5:20

“I will EXTOL THE LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” Ps 34:1

“Through Jesus, therefore, let us CONTINUALLY offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that confess his names.” –Heb 13:15

I am thankful beyond measure. I would write more but one of my big reason for thankfulness just came to play Othello with me… it’s time to devote the day to the kids.

May we forever be greatful! This is my 26th Thanksgiving in my adopted country of the United States.

God bless you all!

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.
