God Have Mercy on America

My new homeland

This is my 26th Independence Day in my adopted country. For eighteen years I have been a citizen.  I praise God for His sustaining grace all these years. My richest “American” blessings have names:

Thom
John
David
Lana

Brianna
Sarah

Cole Vacation 2013

The above picture was taken on their vacation a couple of years ago. Below was last year on the 4th.

What would be a great blessing? To spend this day with them!

My blessings

Our country needs lots of prayer. If our Founding Fathers saw what was happening today they would turn in their graves. This country was founded on the principles of the Bible. One by one those principles are being stripped. The latest Supreme Court Ruling, making gay marriage legal in all 50 States is another step away from God and His Word.

I believe in the sanctity of marriage as it is defined in the Bible, between a man and a woman. If God meant men to marry men and women to marry women, he would have designed a different reproduction system. When gay couples want to have children they have to turn to “straight” couples. That should say something!

I’ve been saddened to see some friends supporting the last day’s happenings, evening rejoicing. We need to drop to our knees and confess our sins before God. When God’s Word is trampled on, it’s nothing to rejoice over. Tears are more appropriate.

God Bless America is being sung in this country today. We need to pray,

God have mercy on America!

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.
