A Letter to the Christian Newly Born

When my mother passed away about 10 years ago, I found this old letter in her keepsake box.  She was baptized in 1931 by a preacher named Flavil Hall.  This is the letter he wrote to her after her baptism:

Profound letter...full of truth and a wonderful thing to give to the newly born again. Thanks for sharing.
I write and maintain a spiritual blog which I have titled “AccordingtotheBook” and I’d like to invite you to follow it.
I so enjoy reading your comments you leave on another blog WE follow.

covnitkepr1 - Thanks so much for your encouraging comments! I really appreciate your reading my blog. I really like the posts I have read so far on your blog, and I would be interested in following it, but the problem is I am already following 2 blogs, plus writing 3 of my own, plus have 2 Etsy shops (and a 3rd one planned), plus work, housework, etc. and I just don't think there's enough time to follow any more blogs. I have seen some with hundreds of blogs listed that they follow, and I've been wondering how they do it. I think I could have a lot of blogs I follow too if it was just sort of "dip-and-skim", but blogs with religious topics are full of "meat" and I'm a slow thinker. So I think, for now anyway, I'm not really able to do it. I'm very appreciative of your invitation, though, and appreciate the comments you've left on my blog -- it's really neat to get a comment, thanks again!

No problem with the following thing...and I agree up to a point that "religious blogs are full of meat"...altho some are full of "bones" which must be spit out.
