Ponder: We've got scars from little accidents when we were young and from surgeries we've had throughout the aging process. Some of our arms, legs and torsos have tattoos. They remind us of the people we've loved and our deeply held beliefs. What marks on your body symbolize the joys and struggles you've endured?
Pray: God, sometimes we feel ugly from our marks. They remind us of our mistakes and shame. And we feel that other marks contribute to our beauty. We know that you were with us as we received every one of these marks. Help us to see your love and grace as we look at each scar and tattoo. Amen.
