      You are so right creativeone! How can one not be glad or overjoyed when God is within them! Truth, rightousness, love, joy, peace, faith, comfort, perseverance, encouragement and forgiveness are of God and from God therefore we should feel a great joy as we walk in it and share it! Blessings to you sister!
