Remodeled Pantry

 Here are two old what our
pantry looked like until a couple
of weeks ago, and after a
makeover, here is the "new"
pantry.  Slowly, but surely, our
house is being "flipped" from
its original look, to a new look. 
One step at a time...

"The Believer's Authority" - Kenneth E. Hagin

     Our church, New Life Fellowship, has started doing small "connect groups" where we get together every other Monday, have dinner, and then study our book.  This is a separate class from our Wednesday night Bible classes, and our Sunday services.  This is probably most enlightening book that I have ever read!!  I don't think that even most Christians truly see and understand the power that Christ has given to US, His body, (as HE is our head), against the devil and all his evil forces.  WE have power over all evilness including the spirits of worry, strife, sickness, bipolarism, stress, cancers, and even the spirit of drama that seems to consume many of our lives! 
     Eph. 1:22 says, "And He hath put all things under HIS feet, and gives head over all things to the CHURCH.  (WE are the church believers!)  Jesus said, "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over ALL the power of the enemy: and nothing {nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing} shall by any means hurt you." (Luke 10:19).  The Head is totally dependent on the Body (we believers) for carrying out His plans; that we are seated with Christ in Heavenly places; and that the exercising authority over the power of the air has to be through the Body.  US!!!!  WE are the BODY!  Isn't that an awesome concept to meditate on?!?!


Nevaeh Colleen Benedict

Our beautiful youngest grandbaby is almost 6 months old now (on the 8th).  We have been blessed to be able to help raise her, and have had her living with us full-time since July 16th (the day of Ashley & Perry's wedding).  She is a very happy baby girl, smiles lots, and has lots of slobbery kisses to give!  She just loves talking on the phone with her daddy at nights, and sometimes talks and talks, though we don't know what she's saying yet.  She is a much loved little girl by her Mama, Daddy (Meghan & Zach), Mamaw and Papa, aunts, uncles & cousins!!
