Scars are ugly.

They mar, they disfigure, and they mutilate. They invoke disgust and distrust in people who see them, as though they are the marks of dreadful secrets and horrid sins. But is that all?

You see, scars paint pictures, spell words, tell stories. They testify to the trials and tribulations through which a person has come. They are a legend to the map of one's life. They speak of an individualís endurance to last through the difficulties and their tenacity to continue on. They are a legacy.

Scars are beautiful.

I am scarred.

I imagine the apostle Paul has some scars that have stories that never made it into the book of Acts.
