every single one who carries
their own unspoken broken –
these pages had to be for you –
the tracing of scars.
~ Dedication at the beginning of The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp
He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)
