Nearby Now

Ever heard of Nearby Now?
It's a great site set up to save you time and headaches...
best of all it's all FREE!!!!
You type in the zip code of the area you are going to be shopping in. Then type what you are looking for in the search. It then finds the items, tells you exactly which stores have that item, and even tells you the price so you know exactly where you need to go before ever leaving the house. I know I've spent time comparing prices. And when I don't compare, I'm always wondering if there was a better deal at another store.
This makes it SO EASY!!!
If you find the item you're looking for you can even reserve it for up to 24 hours.
Here is a Huge list of all the stores currently in their database. What's even better is that they also give you a list of online stores that carry what you are looking for with prices!!
So I tested it...
I am in need of a router for my computer.
I typed in the zip code of the nearest big city where I would shop for it. I found out that the cheapest one is $34.99 at Best Buy and the same router that I currently use is $59.99 at both Best Buy and Radio Shack. I did all this in about 3 minutes!!!
So if you're looking for something and don't want to take the time to drive to different stores to compare I definitely recommend starting at Nearby Now after all it is FREE!!
Just so you know I was asked to review this site but am not getting paid in any way to do this review.
It really looks like a great FREE site!
Check it out for yourselves!

Wordless Wednesday

Do you think this is the same boy???
One picture he's squinting and one he's not right....

Well since I asked the question, I'm sure you figured out.
This is two different boys!
The top one is Micah a few years ago and the
bottom is Shad my 3 yr. old now.
I was looking through old pictures and I saw the top
picture and thought it looked exactly like Shad.
I showed Shad and he insisted it was him.
I asked Micah and he said confidently that it was Shad.
WOW!! I knew they looked alike but SHEESH!!!!
Have a great Wednesday!
For more wordless visit here!

In His Word Wednesday -- Want

Psalm Chapter 23 Verse 1
The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.

In today's world it's very hard to not want.
But instead of wanting, we should look at all
that the Lord has blessed us with.
Let's face it
If we have a relationship with Christ that's really ALL WE NEED!!!
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
Even just words of encouragement. I would love to hear from you!
Just post on your blog, then come back here and sign the linky below.(You are welcome to use my banner if you'd like)
You can even just leave your words or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!
Have a great Wednesday
Update - my Husbands Uncle is doing better but still in the hospital and is going to have a long road to recovery. Please continue to pray

My BIL's Mom is not doing any better. She's on a vent and fighting a lot of infection.
Please pray for her.

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
