If you were blessed enough to open your eyes this morning; there’s still more to see, there’s more to do, more to show, more to live. God has you in His hand, let Him show you the beauty of being alive.
Dean was yelling at Mary, telling her about how he hates her. And he keeps using examples including his brother’s struggles.
Sam lost the girl he loved.
Sam was tortured in hell.
Sam was possessed by Lucifer.
Sam lost his soul.
And then I realized. Dean was abused and traumatized and broken down so many times. He knows that what he went through is fucked up. He might not recognize the severity, but he’s not stupid. He knows his life was never fair to him.
But he’s still more angry about Sam’s trauma than his own. He still thinks Sam is more important. To his mother. To the world.
That makes me really sad.
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.

This Roman Catholic church is located on the summit of Mount Tibidabo in Barcelona. Built in various stages between 1902 and 1961, the bottom half of the church reflects a Romanesque fortress, while the top is neo-gothic in design, accessible by two grand stairways. .
Stained glass windows adorn the Church, some of which are dedicated to Paul the Apostle, John Bosco and Pope Pius X. Sitting above the church like a crown, is a large bronze statue of Jesus.
