Photo of the Day: Orange Star Flower

I’m in love with this beautiful new addition to our dining room! It’s called an orange star flower, and and I believe it originates from Africa. According to one website, it can be planted outside in zones 7-11. I live in northern Missouri, which I believe is more like a zone 6 – can anyone confirm? Will this plant die outside in the summer, or will it just not come back next year?

Photo(s) of the Day: A Heavenly Day

Yesterday was a very special day – our beautiful Baby K was baptized. We were so blessed to have so many people there to witness the occasion – close family, Godparents, friends from our small group, and a large and loving congregation. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives … looking after and praying for Baby K. To all of you … thank you!

Pastor Jake did a great job…
But she still wasn’t too happy! One day she’ll understand.
