    More than 124,000 patients are currently waiting for their organ transplant. Each day 21 patients lose their fight, and their lives, waiting.

    If you’re expecting nothing, you’ll get nothing. But if you’re expecting a miracle, God will perform it.

    I’m so proud of myself for remembering the early deadline on Friday.

    The drive to work last Thursday wasn’t a fun one at all. It’s just amazing how fast the snow and ice came down in such a short amount of time.

    I’m sorry to see that Shopko is closing. What a shame, we need stores like that here in Hodgenville.

    Congratulations to Earl and Elizabeth Sanders on their 65th wedding anniversary.
