Merry Christmas 2016

This was going to be a “spend-it-alone” Christmas! Father had different plans for me. Here I am, 12.00 midnight, waiting for my guests. I am having visitors from Mexico!

One of the Sunday school teachers that uses my on-line materials is coming with her family. You might remember from back in March when I had my birthday and received a package from a Sunday school in Mexico?! Pilar wasn’t happy with just sending a package, she wanted to be the gift herself.

Pilar, her husband and two children are somewhere between Tulsa and Springfield. Rather then looking for a hotel they opted to drive on, making it three long days of travel.

While I wait, let me tell of a very pleasant surprise I had today. My kids came to visit. Just  a short visit but with enough time for them to open their presents.

happy-sarahSarah wished for an I-pad but her mother told her it was too expensive, so then she wished for an I-pod. When I found out about it, and since I don’t use mine very much, how could I resist my precious Sarah-Princess’ wish!

You should have seen her expression when she opened her package. She gave off a cry of delight, “Oh, another electronics!” She has loved electronics almost since a baby! No wonder! Both her Dad and her big brother are IT-guys!

Something a little out of the ordinary happened this week. A handy-man came to fix a couple of things that were pointed out in the home inspection. When he was done he knocked on the door and told me it was God’s blessing. I understood it to be a gift from him to bless me, but the next day there came an invoice. What did he mean? Maybe you can figure it out for me!

I have somebody that has promised to drive the moving truck. I have made a reservation. January 21st I will need help to load the truck. January 23rd I will need help in Fort Gibson to unload. In between, I need lots of help with packing.

Tomorrow I will have to get acquainted with my guests. And we will enjoy Christmas.

Now I wish that you and yours have a very blessed Christmas.

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.
