My heart feels WARM!

Last week when I was staying with my daughter and family, I had just finished the older girls shower and teeth brushing. We were reading the scriptures and then my oldest Granddaughter had a question before we said our prayers and went to bed. "How do you know how your Mom and Dad will protect you if there is a fire? What if they don't hear me when I yell for help? What about a tornado, what will happen to us then?" And then she asked a few more questions that showed me she is learning an awful lot in school, but that she takes every thing literally and was quite scared about a lot of things
As I tried to remind her what Christ said right before His Crucifixion, was that He said even when He left them, he would not leave them comfortless but that He would send them the Holy Ghost. Then I went on and tried to explain the Holy Ghost to her, her Mom was in the room so we both were trying to share from our hearts. Then when she finally felt safe and not so scared she said " I have this warm feeling in my heart when you were talking, does that what the Holy Ghost feels like? 
 Yes, that is exactly how it feels to many people, other people cry because they feel the Spirit so strong, to some it may come as a whispering or as a thought. Whatever the way, I realized that I need to rely on the Spirit more each day to guide and direct my life. I need to not let my fears get bigger than me, and I definitely need to live my life in such a manner that I am worthy to have the Spirit to guide me!
How grateful I am for little children. For their child like faith and for their example to all of us to keep searching and keep asking ...until we get that WARM FEELING in our HEARTS!
Good night dear friends!
