Holly Springs celebrates 170th year
This year is the birthday of Holly Springs. We are 170 years old. Marshall County was 170 last year (1836). Way back in 1837, those immigrants came from far away Virginia and had planned a town on paper. They were looking for a beautiful spot to build a new town and when those covered wagons and buggies arrived here, this was the place they had been looking for.
Wouldn’t it be thrilling to build a new town? If I could go back in time and walk through the streets of Holly Springs, I would choose the 1850 period when the opulent houses were being built.
Imagine how thrilling it would be to walk through the dirt streets and see the houses and talk to the historical characters whom we know through history.
The people who founded the town and county were people of integrity, honor and godly character. Holly Springs was known throughout the state as “The Capital of North Mississippi.” Our history is very historical! We need to celebrate with a birthday party of some sort.
January has always been my favorite month, as it is a time of rest. Fall is so full of activities and Thanksgiving and Christmas are so action-packed that this month is catching-up time.
It is a time of reflection on what we have been through the past year; the anticipation of what exciting things are to come this year.
We need to make each new day count in our lives. Do something great today for someone else. In life you have been given a job to do so do it well.
Be a good example because everybody is watching you to see how you act and react.
