A quote by Ruth Graham:
"You look at me and see my flaws; I look at you and see flaws, too. Those who love know love deserves a second glance; each failure serves another chance.
Love looks to see beyond the scars and flaws, the cause; and scars become an honorable badge of battles fought and won - or lost - but fought! The product, not the cost, is what love sought.
God help us see beyond the now to the before, and note with tenderness what lies between - and love the more!
