The Comforter

“Whenever darkness fills our minds, we may know that we are not possessed of the Spirit of God. … When we are filled with the Spirit of God we are filled with joy, with peace, and with happiness, no matter what our circumstances may be; for it is a spirit of cheerfulness and of happiness. The Lord has given unto us the gift of the Holy Ghost. It is our privilege to have that Holy Ghost reign within us, so that from morning till night and from night till morning we shall have the joy, the light and the revelation thereof.” - George Q. Cannon
  John 15:26 - But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me

I tell my kids that the Holy Ghost feels like being wrapped up in your favorite blanket...warm and comforting...the best feeling in the world!

I am so grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost or "The Comforter" who brings a spirit of cheerfulness and happiness into our homes and lives no matter what the circumstances may be. I just wish that I could be more sensitive to his spirit so that I could have that joy "from morning till night and from night till morning". Wouldn't that be great?
