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.

Needing to remember that only One knows what my tomorrow holds.

Livin' Life, Feelin' Free

Currently...


  • Attempting to hash out a 8-10 page research paper on the  varieties of love found in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales(due SUNDAY),
  • Drinking a LOT of coffee,
  • Listening to a playlist created just for nights such as this,
  • Trying to control my giddy heart( hehe),
  • And loving every second of it.
For real.

I have a Joy that can't be stolen, a Peace that is by no means fleeting, and a Love that will be my supply for the remainder of my days. 


I can handle a stressful week.

Blessings


Thankful for...

- A family who loves, guides, and encourages me in all things

- The Hope who is an anchor for our souls

- Love, given and received, experienced for the first time over the past year and a half. Love patient and kind, pure and true; selfless and glorifying to the Lord... Love that could only be a gift from Him.





Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians 3:20-21

Sappy Post #465

Isn't it just the greatest when your best friend, with whom you act absolutely ridiculous and have the time of your life with, is also the one you get to kiss on and be held by? Isn't it just so nice when he's the same person as the one who makes you dream about the future knowing that you don't even have the slightest idea of how incredible life will be? 





Isn't that just the best?

That's All

I can only give you love that lasts forever
And a promise to be near each time you call
And the only heart I own
For you and you alone
That's all, that's all.


I can only give you country walks in springtime
And a hand to hold when leaves begin to fall;
And a love whose burning light
Will warm the winter's night
That's all,That's all.


There are those I am sure who have told you,
They would give you the world for a toy.
All I have are these arms to enfold you,
And a love time can never destroy.

If you're wondering what I'm asking in return, dear,
You'll be glad to know that my demands are small.
Say it's me that you'll adore,
For now and evermore


That's all,That's all.

Scenes From the Weekend

Where on earth did the weekend go? 



Feeding those ducks! 

By far, my favorite picture of the event! 



Favorite stud-duck. 

Saturday was spent watching L's dad and brother race dragsters over in Denton.
So much fun! 



All in all, a great weekend that went by waaaaaaayyy too fast!

Fall, Fall, FALL!

I've been so captivated by the beauty of fall lately. The leaves are turning, the skies are painted all kinds of beautiful colors from blue to gray, and the temperatures are dropping. I love it! 


A few shots of our town in the midst of fall...








So crazy to think that creation reveals only a glimpse of His majesty and beauty!

Raindrops On Roses

 It's been a while! Life is busy right now, but this busy-ness = happiness, so I'm absolutely fine with it! 

A few things making me happy lately...




1. This cold weather that has moved in to good ol' W'ford! I'm talking temps in the low 50's, which leads to another source of  happiness for me...




2. Outfits like this! I'm living in my boots and oversized
   sweaters!




3. The Lord's faithfulness to us... seriously, His love is unfailing and absolutely overwhelming. There are so many things in my life right now of which I can't see the outcome, no matter how I spin things. But He is good and will never leave me to walk this life alone. So I walk by faith and not by sight, letting go of desires and dreams (which is not easy, I Have to be honest!), desperately seeking His will. That was kind of long haha. But seriously... Rest in Him! 




4. It's almost Christmas... Which means that my absolute favorite and inconveniently seasonal coffee creamer is now in stores! It is all kinds of cinnamon hazlenutty up in here, people. 




5. Weekend visits with old friends who feel like home.






6. Morning workouts before the sun rises that leave me feeling like I kicked the world's booty before it was even woke up... Which wouldn't actually be a huge accomplishment... Kicking somebody's booty while they sleep is not really a big deal. So forget that. You know what I meant, right? 


7. Thrift store finds turning into crafty things to make my walls pretty... I love pretty. 


8. Nat King Cole Holiday Pandora. I crank that thing up on October 1st, my friends. Judge me if you like, you Scrooge, but my world is one holly jolly place right now. 


9. Knowing that I will see my family in just three weeks for Thanksgiving! I miss them so much. I.can't.wait.

10. You. You know who you are. You always make me happy. I laugh when I'm with you and just the thought of you leaves me with a joy of which I feel I'll never experience the full extent. There are a lot of unknowns in our life right now... But we have no reason to be afraid. We walk with the Lord, as a couple and as individual children. We seek His will now the same way. I'm so thankful for your nearness to Him. I'm so blessed by you,encouraged by you,and challenged by you. I pray for you, that your joy will abound in Him and that your knowledge of His character and love will be forever strengthened and renewed. I pray that your shape will be under constant transformation to better represent our Savior. I pray that you walk in His will always, no matter where it takes you. I rejoice because I KNOW you will live abundantly in Him all your days. I love you.
