Anna Charlotte Rogers

Anna Charlotte Rogers

The Rogers Girls

Anna Charlotte Rogers was born at 8:26 this morning, November 14. She is 6 lbs 14 ounces and 19 1/2 inches inches long. She is beautiful. We are so thankful for our second, beautiful little girl. She is a gift from God. Both Anna and her Mom are doing great. Stephanie is so tough and did so well. She is such an amazing Mom. Hope is a very excited, very proud, big sister.

Anna's first name comes from Luke 2:36-38. Anna was a prophetess who lived her life to worship God. She recognized Jesus when Mary and Joseph brought Him into the temple as a baby. The Bible says that when she saw the Lord Jesus "she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem." Our prayer is that Anna will recognize Jesus Christ for who He is, the Savior of the world, and that she will spend her life telling others about the salvation He has brought.

Her middle name, Charlotte, is that of a Southern Baptist missionary, Charlotte Digges "Lottie" Moon (1840-1912). Lottie Moon spent thirty nine years teaching school children, proclaiming the gospel, and serving the hungry in China. If you go to a Southern Baptist church, you hear about her every December. If not, you can read a little about her here.

By the way . . . I am a very blessed and proud husband and daddy!

Hey family! I have not seen you to reintroduce myself. This is Nancy from Elm Grove LA, first cousin to the proud Grandpa Dale. You all look great in the pictures. Joye keeps me posted on all the happenings. Maybe sometime we will get together at Joye's and W.E.'s
Congrats again.

Hey Rogers family! It is the Salem Rogers family here to say Congratulations! That is so exciting!! You know what is funny? We didn't even know you were expecting! Kathy called to tell me, and I'm like Stephanie, um, had a baby??? If I'd known, I would have been praying! But I still will anyway. So we are exponentially happy for you! I'm so excited to know your family has a blog. I will be visiting it often and at least I'll get to know your girls through the virtual world of computers. Hopefully someday we'll meet in person! ~~~~Much Love, Aunt Julie in Oregon
