7 Things About Hannah Joy


HANNAH MAKES ME LAUGH SO MUCH. I thought I'd just throw that out there before I hop on this ol' ship and tell you seven things about her. 

1. She is so mother-like
I can barely explain this. Hannah is the kind of person that tells you to eat your vegetables (but, being the stubborn kid I am, I refuse), not to forget your jacket, and to put on sunscreen. She has such an elegance to her and love for little kids that you just can't help but agree. She hopes to go to China some day and probably even adopt like 19 kids. I have already hired her as my babysitter when I need one in like ten years. 


2. One of the tallest people I know
The above picture doesn't show it very well, but oh well. And because I am terrible with measuring, I cannot say exactly. But just know it is probably above 5'5" and below 6'0". Hannah Joy is the exact perfect height for...wait for it... hugging. Not only is the height important, but her heart for caring is amazing. There were countless times when she has stood tall and scolded me and just...pushed me towards Christ. I see God working in her heart and behold, I cannot help but stand in awe. 


3. She's a dork
oH MY GOODNESS. There have been infinite times where she has made me laugh my lungs out. We have so many jokes that don't make any sense, but they just crack us up. She understands my need to joke in serious situations and I'm beyond thankful for it. There is just so much laughter when I'm with her (as well as tears, let's be honest). 


4. She can be awkward
Honestly, we all can be. But phone calls don't work when I'm awkward and when she's awkward. While we sit in 5-second-silence on the phone, I just can't help but laugh. We're so much better in real life. Hannah Joy, can't call you. Guess you gotta come see me in real life so we can have a conversation. *grins deviously* But although there is awkwardness there, I think that it's because we're both more interested in deep conversations. We're interested in deep thoughts and what each other thinks on one subject or another. 

5. Her writing is superb
Hannah is not one to particularly share her writing, but I can get it out of her every once in awhile. And although she doesn't think much of her writing, I see each sentence mended together with God's glorious hands. She makes up the most hilarious characters and it's...so good. So, so good. I see the surrender in her words. Man. Yeah.


6. She is learning. Always. 
She is so precious. But as the years sneak by, I am seeing all that she is learning. We clasp hands and we drop down our shields and swords, standing behind God. She is learning, yes, but she is teaching me too. That we cannot stand on our own two feet, that we are nothing. But as we surrender, we find safety behind the arms of Jesus. She has taught me more than I can think of. She has pointed me to Christ as much as she could. She has been a humble friend and I am so thankful.

7. She is immensely hard to sum up
Hannah Joy, Hannah Joy. What am I to say about her? I am finding she is hard to put into words. She's more my silence and my tears and my weak hugs. She has stood beside me when the winds blew hard and tried to steal me away. She has spoken words of encouragement and truth into my heart and she has brought me flowers. She has cheered me on, stood quietly, and loved me through everything. Oh man. She is one of my most favorite people on earth, you know. Precious girl.

*sniffs and wraps arm around her shoulder* So without further ado, I introduce the video and song that she showed to me and made me cry for the first time in front of her. Boom baby.



Addy will be posting a post similar to this so be sure to check out her blog later!
