Some worn like a banner.

Others worn like a scarlet letter.

Some scars stand for honor.



Some scars mean we were vulnerable.

He got His because of obedience.

Compassion, great compassion.

Eternal scars.

Reminders of the worst, and yet reminders of the very best.

And us?

Or at least find their meaning.

The scar that means pain can also mean healing.

Health restored.

A second chance.

Scars of vulnerability can mean that trusting is still noble.

Forgiveness is a decision.

We have chosen the path of peace.

Tell others the story.

Find out what they mean.

Your scars.

Their scars.

His scars.
