heaven stands

Its been a heavy week--Haiti, and some things closer to home--and I need to pour out the gratitude that God is due. God is always due our gratitude, even in the mess. And the mess has made me all the more aware of the good in my life:

I'm thankful for my marriage. So thankful.
I'm thankful for my little one and his constancy.
I'm thankful for community; that we don't go it alone.
I'm thankful that "when my world is shaking, Heaven Stands."

"May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
Hebrews 13:20 - 21

If God can bring back from the dead His own Son, then I have hope that God can revive much else, too!
