Vonda Armstrong

Happy Saturday! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. It was a week of fun with my grandbabies for me and I loved every minute of it.

However, I woke up yesterday and took a trip to Urgent care in Savannah, Tennessee . I have been experiencing foot and hip pain for several weeks  and it seemed to just be getting worse.
Seems I may have damaged a tendon around my ankle. The doctor gave me meds and I was a happy camper until he looked at me and said, “you have got to rest.”  “Rest, I replied, What’s that? “

I don’t know if any of you are this way or not but when I set my head to get something done, I have the tendency to not  rest until it’s completed. And how am I supposed to train myself to think differently at 53 years old?

God’s word says in Psalm 127, that God “gives to His beloved in his sleep.” The nights that I sleep well lead to mornings when I am most refreshed and days that I am most productive.

So today I’m asking you to pray for me that I do better on the resting so I can be more productive for Him.

Do you have any prayer requests? If so, please post them in the comments below. I would be honored to pray for you. The older I get, I realize that true friends and the little things in life are at the top of the “Things that Matter” list.

And speaking of things that matter, YOU are on that list as well! You matter. I don’t know what you may be going though, but “If it matters to you, It matters to the master.”

If you are that person today, this song is just for you.
Listen to the testimony of Olivia Collingsworth and this great song by The Collingsworth Family!
Until next week,

Bye Y’all!
Vonda

The McKameys

Southern Gospel singing group The McKameys announced they are retiring and tonight In Knoxville, Tennessee , it’s the Final Concert!

Headed up to Knoxville this rainy Saturday morning. Excited to hear the McKameys and celebrate with them for a job well done.
I can’t help but get excited when I think about Peg singing God on the Mountain once again. I feel like a little kid on the way to the county fair!

Whether they are performing one of their classics like “Right On Time”, “I’ve Won”, “Unspoken Request”, “There Is Jesus”, “God On The Mountain” or a new release, there is an undeniable energy that carries them through each performance.

The McKameys have  been playing about 130 days a year, traveling throughout North America.  The group has been awarded several different Fan Awards through the years, all well- deserved.

But TONIGHT, Paul Belcher is hosting The McKameys one last time at The Knoxville Civic Auditorium. The concert starts at 6:00 pm. I sure hope to see you there!
It’s very close to a sellout.

It should be.

From the entire staff here at SGN Scoops,

Well done friends! You finished strong. We have been honored through the years to write about your amazing family. Best wishes and may God Richly bless you in the future.

(1988 Throwback)

Happy Saturday Everyone!
It’s that time of year. The weather is beginning to cool down finally. It’s football weather. I have two boys that are football coaches so my life has consisted of lots of bleacher sitting.  I was at Michael’s (the oldest) game last night. His Mom and I are friends by choice and she allowed him to be a part of my life for 28 years. I am grateful. But God allowed him to be a part of my life forever.

Coach Easley #2 and 3 won last night so that made for an exciting night. I’ve been in Alabama this week visiting Momma and even worked a couple of days at my old job in Dr. Kennedy’s office!  I am so blessed with many friends and lots of family.

I remember when my kids were younger, we took a trip to roof a house for World Changers. We all seemed to catch on to the theme of the week which was “Love Wins” I’m here to tell you it does every time!

Our family Is blended, but it is blended with sweat, tears, and most of all, Love.

I encourage you today in whatever situation you are in, love the ones God gave you!  For one day, he will need them back…..

Happy Fall Y’all!

Fall into JESUS …..He will never LEAVE!

Love this song by The Bowling Family…

It’s fitting for my Saturday rambling….

Weekend Word With Vonda Armstrong- A Day To Honor Life

Written by scoopsnews on May 25, 2019 – 6:57 am -

“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16

In scripture and in military service, the willingness to give up one’s life is not dependent on the worthiness of the people who benefit from the honorable act.  Memorial Day is an important holiday that remembers those that died for our country, and serves to remind people of the costly price of war.

“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 5:8

We are blessed to be living in a free society. May we honor our American soldiers for the liberty we have in this country. May we also give thanks to Almighty God for the freedom we have to spend eternity with Him because of His gift of forgiveness through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Do You KNOW HIM?

God has made it possible for YOU to know Him and experience an amazing change in your own life. If you would like to speak with someone about this, Inbox us HERE

If you have a prayer request, type it in the comment box below. I will pray for you!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! You know I always like to leave you with a song so I couldn’t find one more appropriate than Triumphant Quartet  singing “Let’s All Stand For America”

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

Weekend Word- “You’re The Only JESUS”

Written by scoopsnews on March 30, 2019 – 6:14 am -

“But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”

Romans 10:1

Here’s a song that says, “You’re the only Jesus some will ever see.”* Think about that for a moment. It’s a pretty sobering thought, isn’t it? Who do your friends see in you?

Weekend Word- In The Morning When I Rise

Weekend Word from SGNScoops

Weekend Word from SGNScoops

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.” Mark 1:35

Starting our days with God means leaning on HIS strength rather than OUR strength throughout the day. It means staying focused on who we are and why we’re here. It means following the example of Jesus and starting every day with God – first things first.

Weekend Word- Live Like Daniel

Written by scoopsnews on February 9, 2019 – 7:48 am -

Weekend Word

“To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds…In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.”

Daniel 1: 17, 2

How can you live in faith while respecting a society that wants nothing to do with God? Remember Daniel went from Hebrew captive to an influential advisor to kings in both the Babylonian (modern day Iraq) and later Persian (modern day Iran) empires.  God used the life of Daniel to demonstrate how we too can live a life of influence and faith, even when worlds views clash.

How can we  live a faithful life in a world walking further away from Biblical beliefs and values? (Straight From The Heart Ministries)

Live Like Daniel!

Weekend Word- Cast Your Cares On Jesus

Written by scoopsnews on January 5, 2019 – 6:38 am -

Weekend Word from SGNScoops

Weekend Word from SGNScoops

Psalm 55:22

Cast your cares on the Lord and He Will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.

Our shoulders were not designed to carry heavy loads, but the first step is to recognize that something is weighing us down.

God’s promise is to sustain us! Be encouraged today and cast your cares upon Jesus. He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory!
