I like this picture because it show's two sides to a rainy day.

It has been raining here a lot over the past few days and, I love it.  I always think of the calm feelings I felt as a child when it was raining.  Some of the best afternoon naps that I've ever taken in my life were during a nice rainstorm. "Calm feelings", what does calm mean?  The Dictionary has it phrased as: The lack of agitation or excitement; tranquility; serenity.  I've come to respect and love the rain because it is so much like the Holy Ghost.  The Lord will give us a Downpour of the Spirit when we are doing righteous works.  Downpours of the Spirit will give us that calm feeling of a nice rainy day.   I can see it in my life. When I'm doing well and the Spirit is with me I'm overcome with "calm".  This sort of peace is pretty easy to find, Scripture Study is a pretty solid advocate of the spirit. Along with scripture study and as a conduit to God prayer helps me feel the comforting calm of the Spirit as I read with a prayerful heart.  Scriptures show me how to live my life in accordance to the Gospel. In John 14:26, the Lord promises, "the Comforterwhich is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." As we follow that counsel, the Holy Ghost can give us that calm in our hectic lives.
