Sunday Lyrics: I am every man

Photo by: echiner1

For those of you that have been reading my Sunday lyrics postings for while, will know that I am a huge fan of Casting Crowns. I’ve featured their music and lyrics here on Gather Little by Little a few times. I find their combination of vocals, music and meaningful lyrics to be the essence of my favorite Christian music.

The song and lyrics for this week is I am every man by Casting Crowns. The song reminds us that regardless of your situation, regardless of who you are and where you are in life, their is hope. Jesus is the hope, for every man, women, and child.

This week I learned about the power of Google and how much traffic they can send to a blog. Over the past few weeks, people around the internet have been using Google to search for terms related to the in economic stimulus rebate. Fortunately, I’ve written a few articles on the subject: one discussing when the rebate checks will be send out, another clarifying that the stimulus rebate isn’t a loan as some people stated, and one talking about what I plan to do with ours.

What is a recession?

The word recession seems to be everywhere these days. You hear it on the nightly news, read about it in the daily paper, politicians discuss it constantly and it’s the topic at the “water cooler” in the office. As I write this article, the word recession is on the main pages for, MSN Money, USA Today Money, Google News…well you get the picture. Everyone is talking about it, writing about it, and worrying about it.

Is the UFF MMA a scam?

One of the more popular internet searches that lead people here to Gather Little by Little is the term “UFF MMA Scam”. I wrote about the United First Financial (UFF) Money Merge Account (MMA) back in October after receiving a flier from one of my sons football coaches. Being fairly new to personal finance at the time, this was my first exposure to the MMA product and its promise of paying your mortgage off in half the time along with saving thousands of dollars in interest. The big red flag for me of course was the $3,500 cost of the software that supposedly helps you do this.

Revolution Money Exchange vs. Paypal

Revolution Money Exchange is a new way to exchange money online. Like Paypal, Revolution money Exchange allows you to send and receive money online. But that’s where the similarities end. Which product is better? That depends on what you are trying to. Run an online business? Paypal may be your best choice for now. More of a online shopper and tired of paying Paypal fees? Than Revolution Money Exchange might be just what you’ve been waiting for.

Sunday Lyrics: I believe

In 1995, Blessid Union of Souls released what is in my opinion one of the best songs of the 90’s, I believe. Although not from a contemporary Christian group, the Blessid Union of Souls version is hands down my favorite version.

In 2006, Building 429 released their version of I believe. Their version is a little “harder” with more of a grungy undertone. I really like it, but it’s hard not to compare it to the original version. I love the sound of lead singer, Jason Roy’s, vocals. He has a very unique sound.

This is a guest post from Momma who blogs at Tales from the road less traveled. Momma and her family are on the road from debt to financial independence and she writes about the journey on her blog. If you what you read, make sure you subscribe to her blog via her RSS feed or via email.

Donna Freedman at MSN Moneyblog wrote a piece highlighting Frugal Dad‘s post Language of the Perpetually Poor. This post really resonates with me, but not because I myself have spent carelessly and lived outside my means, but because I’ve been an enabler of that mentality in those I care about.

For the first time in quit a few weeks I really struggled with what to write for this section. I usually write about something exciting or interesting in my personal life, some major news topic, or about my “real job”. This week though, nothing really happened all that interesting. To be honest though, this is a good thing. We’ve been spending a great deal of time outside as a familyglb working in our yard, playing basketball, throwing the football and just enjoying the wonderful weather here in the Carolinas.
