"I hope that He leaves the scars, mom. I've learned so much from the experience. It has made me who I am. I don't want to lose the scars."
I silently said, "Amen" as I thought about my own scars. I have many physical scars thanks to my dance with cancer. I also have emotional scars from just living life. Although each scar was from a very painful experience, I agree with this young lady when she says that she hopes the scars stay. I would not trade my scars for anything. The experiences that gave them to me, made me who I am today. They shaped and molded my testimony of the Savior and brought me closer to him. No, I would not trade any of those experiences for smooth skin and a perfect, unbroken heart.
The song that I have chosen today fits perfectly with this concept of keeping our scars and holding on to the lessons we have been taught. It is an absolutely beautiful song and the video that goes along with it is very powerful.
Heal the Wound- Point of Grace
I used to wish that I could rewrite history
I am loving my second chance at life.
