Nice melodies conceal a do-it-on-your own philosophy.
Lyrics like this:
"This mountain wasn't nearly the first one that I'd moved
God had seen my victory
Every time I put my weaknesses behind me
And I close my eyes and let His mercy find me" God only offers His mercy after we have conquered our weaknesses?
For a "Christian" artist Cherie doesn't focus on the hope of what Christ does for us, but rather on what we have to do to get to His grace.
Where is the beautiful grace that is proclaimed in the Bible?
"But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8
To me, the song "He Gives Flowers to Everyone" exemplifies one of Cherie Call's strengths: she truly is writing for everyone. Her songs show empathy and appreciation for women at different points in their lives and in different situations. Because of this, her listeners also gain insight into sisters whose lives may be different from their own but whose hearts are surely much the same.
I heard Sis Call during a TOFW and girls. My teenage daughter and I fell in love with her music instantly. We bought three of her cd's- one of them being "He Gives Flowers to Everyone". Two years later, she is still our favorite. We REALLY like her unique style and voice- but, we LOVE her testimony and messages in each of her songs. Cherie Call has filled our home, cars, ipods, and hearts with music that talks about real life and how our Father is there to help and love each of us. I hope for many more cds.
This is an amazing CD by Cherie Call, i like all of her music but this CD is by far the best! All of the songs have a different message and i love each and every one of them. I would recommend this to anyone, teens and adults alike. My favorite song on this CD is "Beautiful" because it makes me feel good about myself and inspires me to see the real beauty in others.
