Oh, what a feeling

An hour after my Easter Sunday post

How like the feeling I had fifty-six years ago—when as a child of eight, I "got saved"—is the feeling I have been luxuriating in during the joyful hour since I declared my faith in my God-blessed freedom.

Fifty-six years ago I felt relieved, freed from the sin the brimstone preacher had, by his Biblical quotations and exhortations, convinced me of (and convinced others in the congregation of that night).

And here again today I feel relieved, freed...to be free. What a feeling indeed!
