From left to right: Don and Jenny Scott, Coletta and Jim Burns

The Scotts have been long time friends of ours who are members of the Westside Baptist Church, Hutchinson, KS. This was their first Thanksgiving away from their kids and grand kids. This picture was taken at the Carlisle Village Inn at Sugar Creek, OH. We did not stay here for Thanksgiving, but just before our dinner, we walked into the lobby and had our picture taken together.

I met the Scotts when I was in between churches. I went to Don's place to give him an estimate with a builder on doing dry wall work at the Scott's new country home. (Don't laugh building committee)! Little did I know that I would soon after join the pastoral staff at the Scott's church, and just five years after I met Don and Jenny, I would become their Pastor for the next nine years. When I resigned the church in Kansas in Nov. 1994, the Scotts bought our family Sunday dinner and brought it to our home to cry with us and hug our hearts. What a blessing to still have friends like the Scotts in Kansas and other places around the world. Thank you Don and Jenny for making our Thanksgiving so special this year. Come again! Burns' Bed and Breakfast and Coletta's Kitchen will always have the door open for you and your family!
