Growing up, this little girl just wanted to be in the same room with someone.
She could talk non-stop, and just loved being around people.
As she grew, her intellect became so apparent.
In taking a test for gifted youth at Johns Hopkins University, she scored in the top 3% in the nation.
She loved to cook and at by the age of 10, she could plan and prepare a meal for the entire family.
Her love for music began to flourish in her early teens.
The piano and her voice not only filled her home, but also her college, and the church building.
Young children rapidly became her joy and passion as she used her giftedness to teach preschool children in Sunday School.
I watched as this young girl matured into a beautiful young woman who found her prince.
As she stepped in the role of being a wife, my role in her life was directed by this verse:
4 Then they (the older women) can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
I hear over and over today, that young women do not want to be taught anything.
This young women broke that mold.
I feel honored to have been the one who has been called upon to "trian" this wife, and now mother.
What has even been more exciting, is to watch as she becomes the "older" woman to younger wives and mothers.
Who is the Godly, honorable, lovely wife and mother described above?
She is the daughter God gave me twenty-six years ago today.
Daughters are a blessing, and I thank God everyday for gift he gave me in my oldest daughter.
Happy Birthday Titus 2 woman, Tara.
