Month of Thanksgiving – Day 5

I am thankful Sam and I moved to Bristol over 10 years ago. Truthfully, we don’t like Bristol much, and we can hardly wait until next summer when we plan to move to Austin, TX. Still, I can’t think of a better place for Sam to have grown up. Most of the teachers he has had in the Bristol Tennessee City Schools have been Christians, some with very strong testimonies and outreach to the students. The outpouring of love and support from this community to the two grieving families and schoolmates this week has been a testament to the spirit of this place. Even Sam said yesterday that even though he doesn’t like Bristol, he’s glad he got to grow up in a place like this. God sure knew what He was doing when He dumped us here.
