Caelan Whitfield was honored Friday night with family and friends getting together to help him celebrate his birthday. They all enjoyed eating out together in Lavonia. We want to wish him a very happy birthday.

There is a lot of sickness, pain and loss of loved ones going on around us. All families are subject to just the daily things in life. Keep your neighbors, friends, schools, churches, our officers and public safety personnel in your prayers. Make it a daily thing just to pray for others.

It was great to watch the snow coming down on Saturday. It was so beautiful laying on the ground and in the trees. Thank God there was no ice and just a beautiful display of his love for us. I love it when the weather forecast gets it wrong. God is still in control.
