A Beloved Prophet

What a wonderful man, he was! I was so stunned and saddened to learn of his passing last night. I was in Jr. High when President Hinckley became the prophet of the church and I have loved him dearly. I feel blessed to be able to say that I have been in his presence and felt the power of it. I loved his optimism and ambition and sense of humor. He will be missed. But I'm happy to think of him reunited with his sweet wife. I feel like I was prepared a little bit last week for his passing when I was reading the Ensign. I was reading President Monson's First Presidency address and I had an overwhelming love for him come over me and the thought that he will be an amazing Prophet. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on this earth today and it will continue to be led by a true prophet.

I love this post Jill. I'm going to go read that talk right now. It is so hard to have a change like this when President Hinckley was so loved.
