Hi! We're Lance and Rebekah Gibson.
We are newlyweds happily settled in the Lonestar state.
We love lots of things including drive-in movies, game nights, anything involving the lake, and our Lord and Savior.
Definitely frustrated with myself right now. I HATE how hard it is to get back into working out after a week of not doing anything. Being away for two weeks and out of my routine really sucks.
I look/feel fat and it's just hard to get back on track. And I'm about to be gone for another week of camp. Blah. Blah, blah, BLAH. I just feel incredibly unattractive and gross. Also, let me just go ahead and say now that no one person or comment has made me feel this way all of the sudden. Nobody has said anything.
And for the record, Lance makes this feeling go away. I always feel beautiful when I'm even just near him.
Mmm. There's nothing like being held by the guy who owns your heart. Nothing like lying there, every sense heightened by his nearness, breathing him in, and knowing that you've found your absolute favorite spot on earth.
I love being held by him. In those moments all I can do is close my eyes and thank the Lord for blessing me so undeservedly with that boy. I thank Him for those little moments. I thank Him for how incredibly amazing everything is in our relationship. I praise Him for using us and our relationship to bring glory to His name and for remaining so near to us as we continue to grow in love with one another.
Then, I close my eyes, fight the sleep, and wish that I could stay there all night long.
"When a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. She lives in the balance of passion and contentment. She learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. The woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. Hold everything with open hands. I don't think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. When you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. And then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small."
I'm NOT going to be discouraged when Satan tries to attack the things in my life the Lord has done/is doing. I'm not going to believe the lies and I'm not going to give in to the hurt.
INSTEAD, I will rejoice in the fact that he sees the things the Lord is doing in my life as a threat.
I will trust. I will grow. I will be confident in what the Lord has already done and the way He is continuing to work.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I feel like all of my posts lately are incredibly sappy... but I happen to be an incredibly sappy individual, so deal with it. :)
Things are just so good... everything is just so good. Well, everything is good, except for my body hate. I'm not doing so well in that area...But I'm working on it!
Anyways, back to everything that is awesome, I love the work that I get to do at church... Things at my house have been pretty calm for a while... There's this pretty awesome guy I know who just happens to love me. I happen to love him too, and things seriously seem to get better and better and better with us. I love him more than I thought I could love someone. And it's so good. I can't wait to see what will happen between us in the future if it's only been a year and things are already this amazing. I stinking love that guy, and I don't tell him enough.
I started something pretty cool this week. At least, I think it's pretty cool. I can't really say anything about it just in case Boy reads this. But my excitement over it is killing me! The reason I can't go into detail is because it's for this Boy I love so much. He won't get it for a while, but he could someday, so until then, it's a surprise. :)
