Our Mouth was Filled with Laughter

Dear Elisabeth,

Happy birthday!!!!!!
You probably thought I had forgotten what a gloriously special day it is, but hey, I remembered!

It makes me smile to think that God gave me another little sister 17 years ago today. Another little baby to hold, another little sister to play with, a sister who is willing to laugh at all my crazinesses even if no one else laughs, a  sister who brightens my life with her laughter and makes me laugh even when I don't want to or else the sister I can make laugh when you don't want to. ;) There are very few people who understand my humor like you do and are willing to laugh with me. Sometimes all it took was to look at each other in the eyes and then we would lose it completely and start laughing hysterically.

You not only bring much joy and laughter into my life, but you have taught me so much in life as well. You have taught me that it is ok to be myself and to be different from everyone else by your own example. You never seem worried about what people may think of you, but are more concerned about doing what is right and living a life for Jesus and being a light for him. You have encouraged me to do the same. You always stand strong for what you believe is right and are not easily persuaded by what others might say. You love to serve others and reach out to your neighbors.

Although you will always be my little sister you have grown to be a beautiful and godly young lady who is taller than me (not that that was very difficult to do. Hehe!). I am so thankful that God gave you to me as my little sister. I love you sooooooooo much! Keep shining for Jesus!

Your Crazy Sister,
               Hannah Jo


"When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
We were like those who dreamed.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
And our tongue with shouts of joy;
Then they said among the nations,
'The Lord has done great things for them.'
The Lord has done great things for us;
We are glad."
Psalm 126:1-3
