A New Brother

Today my sister married and I gained a new brother.
My parents with my sister, Danae and and her groom, Kilian

Danae and Kilian with all Danae's siblings 
It was a little startling to realize that my sister, who was born when I was fifteen, is old enough to be married! As a teen, I had given up on ever having a sister, since I only had brothers. But, as you see in the photo, God not only gave me Danae, but also two more sisters.

Getting photos of eleven children was a challenge but they cooperated well. And yes, the girls are outnumbered 3 to 8!

Best wishes Danae and Killian for many happy years serving the Lord together!


  1. What a beautiful family and on such a happy occasion. Wishing the bride and groom many blessings in the years to come.

  2. Congratulations to the happy couple! I didn't realize you came from such a large family. How wonderful!

  3. Wow! I have lost track of your younger siblings...I can only name the first 4 or so...and I can hardly believe Danae is old enough to get married either! :-) Are we getting older by any chance?!?!?
