Conversations with Hannah
Since I made a post on conversations with Kaitlyn I thought it would only be fair to have one for Hannah too. Now Hannah being 2 years Kaitlyn's junior makes her conversations a little more interesting.
Hannah: Mama. You know there is a bad Hannah and a good Hannah.
Me: There is, huh?
Hannah: Yeah, the bad Hannah does the things I do not want to do. She doesn't want to obey you mommy. The good Hannah wants to obey you.
Me: Oh, well what will we do?
Hannah: I don't know. The bad Hannah wants to kill me.
Me: Oh, honey, well we will just not let that happen then. Let's ask Jesus to help you make the good Hannah stay in charge.
(She understands the battle with the flesh better than I do! Lord, help her to walk in your Spirit always.)
Hannah: Mama. You know what?
Me: What honey?
Hannah: Mama, you are beauteefull. I like your red shirt.
Me: Well thank you baby. I think you are beauteefull too!
Hannah: (IN WALMART) Hey, you want to see my new dance? (Addressed to any random stranger!!!)
Lady in Walmart: Sure.
Hannah: Da da da, da da da da (while dancing a ballet number she made up.)
Me: (Oh Lord, please let this end soon and bless this lady through it.)
Lady: Thank you so much Hannah. You have such a great daughter. She blessed me so. My daughter is getting married and we are not on the best terms right now. I know it will pass but I miss those days. Cherish these days.
Me: Thank you. You have blessed me too. (Pwehh. Worried that my daughter would be an annoyance to her. Just wanting to rush on through Walmart to get done. Thank You Lord for using Hannah to show me the ministry opportunities around me. Thank You for using her to bless someone and teach me more about loving others.)
