SECOND BLESSING ponders this truth through the ramblings of Mildred Stanford Hayes, an elderly “prim and proper” lady in rural Alabama, 1988. She claims to have a Second Blessing, which is more than just doing right. It’s the knowledge that you are pure. It’s not thinking of yourself better than others, though you are, or showing it, though you do, since it’s as natural as breathing. A Second Blessing is a gift shared with prophets of old and yet to come. It’s not just having my name written in the Book of Life, but engraved.
THE FREE DICTIONARY defines Second Blessing as “Sanctification of a Christian believer, considered as a gift of the Holy Spirit given after conversion and sometimes thought of as rendering the believer incapable of committing sin.”
