We Thank Thee O God for A Prophet

How lucky we have been to have President Hinckley as our prophet the last 12 years. So many emotions have gone through me in the past hour that I have known about Pres. Hinkley's death. First, sadness, I will miss him greatly. He is the only prophet I have REALLY known. "His quick wit and humor, combined with an eloquent style at the pulpit, made him one of the most loved of modern Church leaders." His life and leadership will forever be apart of me. My next emotion was happiness. He has been reunited with his eternal companion! What a sweet day!

I feel blessed to have been able to see Pres. Hinckley last month when we went to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Concert in December. I vividly remember hearing the crowd hush and stand as the Prophet walked into the room. The spirit immediately bore testimony to me that he was indeed the Prophet of God. That witness will stay with me and I will treasure it forever.


  1. I was thinking about the tabernacle too! We are so lucky to have seen him one last time, I will miss him. He was so cute!

  2. What a blessing he was in all our lives! I sure feel so blessed to have been on this earth the same time as that great man!!
