SIKESTON - "I'm a miracle," exclaimed Penny Simmons. When Simmons tells her story, listeners have to agree - she is a walking, talking miracle. Somehow when a car came crashing through her house Monday morning, striking the couch where she was sitting, she survived to tell the story. "I was sitting on the couch in front of the window and all of a sudden that car came crashing through the window. I was apparently thrown straight up in the air. The Lord must have picked me up. I know God was with me because I don't have anything on me but bruises."
