Unfailing

idea: the joker, compelled even against his own interests to do whatever he thinks would be funniest. the joker may be a sadist with a really shitty sense of humor but even he knows a high-quality punchline when he sees one. his obsession with batman is rooted in batman’s unfailing ability to trick the joker into a better gag that gets him captured. the joker gets chased into a room with plenty of really great hiding places and escape routes, but also a slender pole in the middle of the room. he has to hide behind the fucking pole. he’s gotta. how can he not go for the hiding behind a pole gag. there’s three doors but there’s also a joker-shaped hole in the wall that will make it look like he broke through the wall. it’s a four-story drop into a bakery dumpster full of pies. the joker is obsessed with batman because deep in his heart he knows that batman is actually funnier than he is but instead he spends his time standing on rooftops in the rain being a stoic piece of shit. the joker is salieri, and batman is a mozart that decided to go into carpentry.

What a blessing it is to love books. Everybody must love something, and I know of no objects of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden.

Love gets complicated. And often times, it’s because we complicate it. We are not always trying to, but our imperfections keep us from being able to fully understand perfect love. But because of God’ grace, our imperfections don’t keep us from being perfectly loved by Him.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” - Isaiah 54:10
⠀⠀⠀⠀
The love we receive from others and the love we give might be flawed, but the love of God is unfailing. We may live in a fallen world that often seems to be void of love, but because of the Lord, that is never the case. And the beautiful thing about God is this: even though we cannot fully comprehend His love, His love fully comprehends us.

For the book that rescued me from a long and painful period of writer’s block, reminded me what I love about the work, and taught me how to find my way back to it when I’m lost.

For all the lovely people I’ve met and friends I’ve made because of it.

And for the boys who are so real to us that they feel like a part of us. 💙💛

Thank you @rainbowrowell and thank you snowflakes!! You make my world a better place with your unfailing kindness.❤️❤️

You realize there is nothing to fear living in His presence. The world can take it all because you have found everything in Him.
