I came home that night minus one cyst, plus one scar. . . courtesy of three big black stitches. While I'm not the one to flash my chest to the entire world, therefore minimizing my need for a scar-less one, I'm not going to pretend I wasn't disappointed. But Adam's about yet another flaw I will forever carry on my body?!
It will be a cute scar! I will kiss it everyday.
He humbles and teaches me with this quiet, constant love, because my personality is too quick to judge those around me. Too quick to place value on the physical instead of strength of character. Too quick to pull back when hurt and disappointed. I had no idea how much I needed to grow in this area. No idea that my own world would be rocked and changed by true unconditional love.
So I find hope in this new scar on my body. Hope in a daily reminder to truly cherish the ones God has placed in my life. Hope that someday I could learn to love in the deepest, truest way that I am each day by the sweet man I call my own.
Who do you feel the most loved and cherished by?!
