What I’m Thankful For

by Steve Ray on November 27, 2008

These pictures say it better than words. I am now a father of 4 and a grandfather of seven, er, well, based on the last picture — a grandfather of eight! (Click on images for larger pictures.)

The first picture is of our whole family. From the top left: our daughters Charlotte and Emily; our daughter Cindy with her husband Ben Brown; our daughter-in-law Anna with our son Jesse.

Seated: Gianna Brown, baby Sebastian Brown both held by my wife Janet. Next Damian Brown and Maria Faustina Ray held by me.

In front: Dominic Brown, Sammy Ray and Joshua Ray.

The second picture is our new addition, 90% sure the baby is a girl. Anna is the proud (and still morning-sick mom).

God bless all of you! I sure hope those cousins live close enough to enjoy those built in friendships. My kids haven’t been that lucky in the cousin department (we live far away) but I hope their children have the blessing of having family nearby.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What a beautiful family you have!

I hope, one day, to meet with you … perhaps on a pilgrimage. So far, I have read many of your articles and listened to several of your talks. Your enthusiasm is incredible.

Ad Jesum per Mariam!

I love this photo, Steve. What a wonderful, good looking family, full of lots of babies.

Beautiful family, Steve. I am enjoying your authorship of the Acts section of CSSI series. Merry Christmas.


p.s., Joshua looks like he might just have a little rascal in him.
