My wife, Erma, just came in from the yard carrying a beautiful iris in her hand. Excitement is in the air. It’s springtime! The perennials are waking up after the dormancy of winter and the trees are exploding with vibrant color and fresh foliage. I love this season of the year, because it symbolizes the newness of life that we have in Christ and the hope that is ours through Him. Things are in full bloom at the Mansion as well. Neglected and abused children are blossoming into their full potential and finding true significance in life as a result of the nurturing environment of love and care that they had never known before. Thank you, again, for helping us help them!
