I took this picture while touring one of the ruins in Antigua, Guatemala.  You could see the centuries old fountain, which most days sits dry, framed by the new growth of the beautiful bougainvillea.  As I looked at the scene before me, it reminded me of how God makes all things new.  We are sent to proclaim freedom to those who are bound by their past and feel unworthy, and help them see that God can turn their mourning into joy and clothe them with hope for the future.
