Take It in
There is no doubt that every day, of every week, someone out there feels like their whole world is flying by. Some feel like everything is going to fall to pieces; others feel like they just can't keep up. It is at this moment that you really need to just STOP...and see what you are missing. See all the blessings God has bestowed on us, the beauty of our environment, the beauty of a child's smile, the kindness of a gentle soul. All of these things and more are beautiful expressions of God's love for us and there are so many of them that don't need words to describe the feeling behind it. This is the premise behind the brand new release from multi-award winning Christian artist, CHRISTOPHER AMES. The idea to create an instrumental CD was inspired by the quote by Francis of Assisi that reads 'Spread the Gospel whenever you can, use words only when necessary.' The new CD features original acoustic compositions along with an assortment of traditional hymns and (a few) cover tunes with new arrangements. We hope you will consider picking up this CD to enjoy on your vacation, to share with a friend going through a difficult time, to listen to on a long commute home, to enjoy during a backyard barbecue, to inspire you to just STOP...and TAKE IT IN.
