Today is our oldest daughter Holly's birthday . . . she was born at 6:08 a.m. in VA Baptist Hospital in Lynchburg, VA, 34 years ago. The delivery room nurse commented, "Oh no! Not another loud one!" Even then, Holly was exercising her lungs in preparation (I am certain) for her beautiful singing voice later :).
Life has never been dull since--she began walking at 10 1/2 months, would spend hours sitting perfectly still if I would look at (and later read) books with her, and was a bundle of energy.
She's a busy pastor's wife and mother of three;
she's a wonderful daughter and big sister;
she loves her family and does so much for them;
But above all, she's a committed Christian who lives out her faith by doing for others and using her talents and creativity for Him. I am proud to be her mother.
