Happy birthday to my sweet sister Anny Joy. She’s such a blessing to me, Christy and our entire family. Anna’s namesake is the prophetess who according to Luke “never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying,” When she saw Jesus, she told everyone who would listen about the child come to redeem Jerusalem. This was Anna’s joy.
After all our aimless, ignorant wanderings together (and there were quite a bit) knowing the Lord and sharing His love has become a uniting joy for my sister and me. We’re blessed beyond words. Happy 32nd Birthday Anna, you’re better than a stepping out queen, you’re the one and only, truly Madam Joy.
