Waiting Songs (a review and a giveaway)

Blog 11 Comments

Is it Christmas already? By the looks of the shop windows, it is. Christmas is in full-swing. Except that it’s not.

We have something important to do before Christmas. Something that cannot be skipped. Before the Christ child and His Holy Family arrive, we have to get a few things ready. We have some readying of our hearts and homes to do. Thankfully it is not yet Christmas. We have Advent. This season of preparation, of learning to wait, of longing and desire, of pondering things in our hearts.  So, when that moment comes….you know that Christmas moment. Breathless, excitement, the anticipation at its peak, we know what that moment really means. We know that our Savior, THE Savior of the world has finally come. Come to make His home in our hearts and in our lives. He has come to stir things up and to bring us peace.  He has come to breathe new life into dead situations and to show us the meaning of our lives.

Advent is a beautiful time of year that often gets skipped over in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.  By the time December 25 comes around we are burnt out and already tired. Come December 26, we are more than ready to tear down the tree and be done with Yuletide cheer.  It was a long month since Thanksgiving.  Oh, but if we don’t skip Advent! Maybe things could be different.  During Advent, we need to pause, to reflect, to consider, to desire and even to pine for Jesus.

This is where Rain For Roots‘ new album Waiting Songs fills a very important need. Songs especially for Advent. Although filed under “Children’s Music,” I assure you this is nothing like the annoying music you dread to put on in the car. In fact, during the first listen there were tears in my eyes. It’s beautiful and compelling music, theologically sound lyrics, no pop-references or Santa. In a word, it’s lovely.

One of my favorites on the album is Mary Consoles Eve, inspired by one of my favorite art pieces.  It’s about Mary, undoing the shame of Eve by a long-awaited promise fulfilled. Beautiful.

Mary Consoles Eve

“Mary Consoles Eve” by Sister Grace of the Sisters of the Mississippi Abbey

There is just such richness in this album. So much that children will immediately understand. Concepts such as it’s hard to wait and while we wait we should be singing and sometimes you don’t have the right words yet your heart beats with the truth and all things will be made right in the end.  My kids (ranging in age from 2 to 14) already love this album. We listened to it all day yesterday and it never got old.

In this Christmas rush, we invite you (we implore you) to take time to prepare. Take time to Advent.  Light those candles. Read those Scripture passages. Listen to waiting songs….while you wait.

Rain For Roots has graciously offered a giveaway. A really fantastic giveaway.

Five runner-ups will enjoy a free download of the entire Waiting Songs album!

The Grand Prize winner will receive (get this!), THREE Rain For Roots CDs: Big Stories For Little Ones (which saved my life one time on a road trip from California to Texas with an 9 month old), The Kingdom of Heaven Is Like This (songs from the parables of Jesus), and Waiting Songs. But what! There’s more! The winner will also receive an Advent/Christmas Ornament. 

Waiting Songs

Four things that are all true about Christ’s coming. Almost. Not Yet. Already. Soon.

So enter below.  There are lots of ways to enter to increase your chances of winning! Some you can do every day! Winner will be announced November 23!  In time for you to enjoy your prize when Advent begins November 29. *wink, wink* How’s that for planning?!

Running Errands With Kids? Try The Trip Clip! (A review and a giveaway!)

Blog | Raising Arrows 11 Comments

So, you know what’s fun? Running errands with your kids in tow. It’s a blast right?! It’s right up there with matching socks, getting a root canal, or responding to a jury duty summons.  Oh come on! I know I am not the only one who sort of treasures those times when I can run to the bank, post office, and Target by myself and perhaps squeeeeeeze in a cuppa at the coffee shop. Bliss.  Pure bliss.

But, let’s face it. Most of the time running errands means a lot of buckling and unbuckling car seats, finding public restrooms, answering “Are we done yet?” and “Can I have this?” over and over and over and over again.  It’s just life. The mom life.  And it takes mad skillz.  (See our post on Grocery Shopping 101!!!)

Why we love meal planning….and the winner of the giveaway!

Menu Plans No Comments

Up until the point I started this blog, I was not much of a meal planner.  The most I would plan would be a couple days ahead.  I always cooked, from scratch, and we almost always ate at home.  There just wasn’t a lot of planning going on. Read More
