Valentine’s Part Four – Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions speak louder than words…we’re all familiar with that saying.  I’m sure everyone can think back to a time in their life when someone’s actions spoke volumes about their love that words wouldn’t be able to describe.  We could all stop right now and make a list of those moments.  Some would be long, others…

Valentine’s Part Three – God of Love Versus gods of Fear

An African Proverb reads – “It is better to be loved than feared.” Odd statement coming from Africa, isn’t it?  When we read about Africa don’t we read about superstition and fear?  When is the last time you heard the words “gods,” “Africa,” and “love” all in the same sentence?  Instead, we find tribes of…

Valentine’s Part Two – The Course of True Love

There is a quote from William Shakespeare that says: “The course of true love never did run smooth.” When we read the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation, without a shadow of a doubt we see that God loves people. Even though we’re sinful, careless and full of failure – He still loves every single human…

Valentine’s Part One – Yes, God Is Love, But…

…not without tremendous cost. Yes, the true course of love had a tremendous cost. Because we’re thinking about love this week, I’ll be referencing the cross a bit, so why don’t we go back and examine why the cross had to be? Think about it, since God is God, why did He have to suffer…

One of my new year resolutions for this blog is to do a give-a-way every month. As you can see, I already failed miserably for January! So, let’s start off February right – and give away Legacy Five’s current project “A Wonderful Life.” The title song, written by Jim Brady is the first song on…

Legacy Five – The Finer Things In Life

When the temperature outside is in the lower 30’s there’s nothing like some good ole’ Southern Gospel Music to warm you up!  Legacy Five did just that in Mountain Home, Arkansas at the East Side Baptist Church.  This quartet, made up of Gus Gashes (tenor), Scott Fowler (lead), Scott Howard (baritone), Glenn Dustin (bass) and…

The Harvest Field Of Life

A couple of months ago I was driving across the bootheel in Southeastern Missouri. It was late October and the farmers had their combines out in the fields, bringing in their harvest of cotton. It was a bit odd, yet very cool, to see bales of cotton instead of hay! The fields that were yet…

CD Review: Dream – McClellan Singing Sisters

“Sing to the Lord, bless His name, proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.” – Psalm 96:2 This verse is the motivation behind the all female quartet, the McClellan Singing Sisters and their current project, Dream. Based out of Adams, Nebraska, these four sisters: Tiffany, (20) Kimberly, (16) Jewel (14) and…

1 Quartet + 2 Families = 3 Great Ways To Begin The New Year!

The last day of any event is bittersweet.  Bitter because it’s almost over – sweet because you’ve made some special memories while you were there.  That’s what it was like on the last morning of Legacy Five’s NYE Celebration.  Yet, with a line up like Doug Anderson, The Crist Family, Legacy Five and the Collingsworth…
