This Thanksgiving I am most thankful for the dear sweet family God has given us! Jack and I were blessed to have everyone at home with us on Thanksgiving Day and then we traveled to Teague for a family reunion with the Comers on Saturday. This huge tree stood outside the Family Life Center of the First Baptist Church of Teague. His aunt told us the tree was a source of heated discussion when the building was constructed because some wanted to cut it down. It was decided to preserve the tree and the building was built a little further back. She told us that everyone likes to take pictures by the tree, which is also something we could not resist. We took lots and lots of family pictures there yesterday. It seems like the tree, so big and old, stands as a symbol of stability and strength, a quality all families should strive to have.
