The God of All Comfort

It felt very appropriate that Pentecost and Mother's Day coincided yesterday. It seems that a mother's heart is the heart of the Holy Spirit - a heart that above and before all else, counsels and comforts. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. (John 14)
