To kick off Gabriel’s birthday celebrations, we went last night the music concert of Jame Soles. Oh boy, was it fun!! Gabriel loved watching Mr. Soles with his family on stage, and especially seemed keen about the acoustic guitar. A-dooooor-able.
Besides the fun of Gabriel’s first music concert, we bought 4 new Soles cds (I know, I know– we originally only planned on buying two; but it was one of those times when a “buy 3 get 1 free” deal was too good to pass up!).
These are the newest additions to our family’s music collection:

“GOOD ADVICE”
A children’s album filled with great, memorable Bible and list songs, which grew out of Bible story times in the Soles household. Nothing like a song to help you remember!
Built on the premise that children prefer food to fluff, Good Advice treats children like grown-ups; it does not talk down to them, or play to their natural foolishness, but rather builds on the expectation that the child will one day be an adult. These are songs to grow by.

“ASCENDING”
Three times a year all the men of Israel were required by God to go up to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices at the feast day celebrations. This was the ascent, and Psalms 120-134 were written for those times. Ascending offers renditions of these Psalms.

“MEMORIALS”
There are many things in Scripture spoken of as memorials, things which bring to remembrance – the rainbow, the priestly garments, memorial portions of offerings, Passover, jealousy tests, and ultimately, the Lord’s Supper. Memorials is a musical celebration of God’s faithfulness reflected in these signs of remembrance.

“PURE WORDS”
Into the Psalter through the front door…. In this second album of Psalms from Jamie, Pure Words, 15 of the first 16 Psalms unfold….


I think my favorite thing is how Mr. Soles describes the premise of his childrens’ music on the disc insert of “Good Advice” — children prefer food to fluff… it does not talk down to them, or play to their natural foolishness, but rather builds on the expectation that the child will one day be an adult. I love that! Amen. 🙂
