Weekend Word With Vonda Armstrong

Written by scoopsnews on April 20, 2019 – 6:58 am -

Can you believe the weekend is here? It’s Easter weekend. What does Easter mean to you?

To me, Easter me is not about a bunny. It’s about the cross. It’s about Jesus’ love for us and His willingness to give up His life for ours. It’s about the sacrifice He made so we could live forever with Him.

Have you ever wondered what Jesus thinking about as he died on the cross? Was he tempted to fear death? Hebrews gives us a clue in referencing Psalm 22, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 

One thing is for sure. There is no way for us  to appreciate the  horrific experience of having the sins of the world put upon the Lord Jesus as He hung in excruciating pain from that cross. The physical pain was immense.  The spiritual one must have been even greater.

This shows us clearly how much God loves us.

Enjoy spending time with your family this weekend celebrating the true meaning of Easter!

He is Risen!

Deuteronomy 31:6

Until next week, Jesus loves you and so do I!

Let’s Give Flowers🌹🌸🌼🌻🌺🌷💐

Written by scoopsnews on April 18, 2019 – 10:12 am -

Have you heard the expression “Give them their flowers while they are still alive”? Often times, when a person dies, we call up a florist and send over flowers. What if you took the time to do that for a person while they live?

Is there someone that has been there for you in a dark hour? Perhaps someone prayed for you or did a kind gesture that you’d like to recognize? Maybe there are several people and not just one.

Do it here. Post their picture, tell us why….Let’s give Flowers! Don’t forget to tag your person or people. Let’s add some positivity to Facebook today! 

Here’s a famous quote about gratitude:

Words to live by…

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

– John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thursday from SGN Scoops!

Vernon Alabama’s Gospel Music Weekend- “Spotlight Artist”- Eagle’s Wings

Written by scoopsnews on April 17, 2019 – 11:50 am -

Eagle’s Wings Returns To Southern Gospel Weekend 2018

Eagle’s Wings

Meet the Spotlight Artist of the Week for Vernon, Alabama’s Gospel Music Weekend.

Eagle’s Wings is a Bluegrass/Southern Gospel band that hails from Jasper, Alabama. The group consists of members DarryleWilson, Debra Wilson, Matthew Wilson, Kevin Chambers, and Jacob Patterson.

Originally conceived as an acoustic, Southern Gospel band with the intention of doing standard Southern Gospel songs with an acoustic flair, they soon added a banjo to the mix and from then on, they were considered a Bluegrass group.

The band first performed in 2008 under a different name which they soon changed to Eagle’s Wings, based off of Debra Wilson’s life verse, found in Isaiah 40:31

Soon, after forming, they decided they didn’t want to only do covers of songs, and the band began to write and perform their own songs.

Career highlights include winning a showcase at NQC and getting to perform on mainstage as well as getting to open for some of their favorite groups like, The Isaacs and Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver.

They’ve recently had their first #1 song in the Singing News Bluegrass Charts with their version of “King Jesus”,  promoted by Hey Y’all Media.

“Our main goal is to see souls saved, and spirits lifted, but also to see toes tapping and hands clapping”, states Matt Wilson of the group.

Here is a poster with a complete lineup of Artists for the event.

Beyond the Song: The Old Paths sing “Lord Knows”

Written by Staff on April 15, 2019 – 6:32 am -

The Old Paths share authentic stories of Christ’s power on It’s Real

The Old Paths share authentic stories
of Christ’s power on new album,  “It’s Real.”

Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to ask The Old Paths about the song “Lord Knows.” It is an awesome tune that gets the listener’s fire burning.

“When we heard this song for the first time, we had the same feeling! Wow! What really drew us to pick this song for the album was the theme of God knowing what we are all going through along, with the fun tempo. That first line of, ‘I see you walking down that dead end road,’ brings conviction to those going down that path.

“People all around us are headed down a dead end road, thinking there is no hope. They think they are too far gone for God to intervene and work a miracle. Their ‘heartaches are like a ball and chain,’ is such a good line expressing the

pains of this life. Many people have prayed and prayed for Heaven to move on their behalf and feel that God isn’t there. The song then reminds us about the power of what God can do and what kind of situations He can deliver us from. He delivered the Hebrew three from a fiery furnace, which was seemingly impossible. He knocked down the walls of Jericho. He is all-knowing and is anxiously waiting to help those who are facing the fiery furnace of life’s trials. This song is loaded with truth, but is also a ton of fun to sing! The track turned out great with the help of Crossroads and their great musicians.”

The Old Paths are: Tim Rackley, Daniel Ashborn, Douglas Roark, and Steve Ladd. Their new album is entitled, “It’s Real.” Find out more about the old Paths on their website HERE. The album will be available everywhere March 22 from Sonlite Records.

We don’t have a complete video of the song, but you can hear part of it here. The song is available for purchase at your favorite outlet.

Please pray for  Dan Clark and family.

Recent update from Jason:

Crazy night of travel. Two planes broke down (thankfully while on the ground), third plane got us to Nashville safely, finally got to Indiana at dawn.

Dad just finished his second 4-hour dialysis treatment. He’s got a lot to overcome to be qualified for a transplant.

God’s Grace is sufficient, His mercy endureth forever.

Your prayers are so appreciated. We are all humbled.

We at SGN Scoops are praying, please join us.
