We Thank The Oh God for a Prophet

I’m not sure how the catholics feel about the Pope.
I’m not sure other churches feel about their head, but as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we adore our prophet. Not in a respect, man of God type way (although we feel that too) to each of us, he’s a well-loved grandpa who we love seeing, and only has the best words of advice for us.
Our prophet is Gordon B Hinckley. He’s 96 and still travels. He’s recently had a bout with cancer but still seems especially spry for his age. I met him once. It still makes me laugh to this day, but that’s another story for another blog.
At the finish of our General Conference (twice a year “church” is broadcast over the TV to members — and non-members alike, so we’re all seeing the same thing) we sang “We Thank Thee Oh God For a Prophet” and I felt so strongly that I wish President Hinckley could live forever. I do love to listen to him, his commands are easy to follow and I always reap many more blessings from his words then I sow.
So, in concerance with the hymn, I too thank my Heavenly Father for such a great prophet. I hope to obey his command with as much vigor as I adore him.

Conference from Yesterday

    We were talking about that this weekend. How much we love him and how very sad it’s going to be when he dies. He’s done so many great things for the people of our church and the image of our church. The media loves him! He does us proud.

    I got a little chocked up yesterday when he was saying his closing remarks. Every conference I wonder if this we’ll be his last. It really hit me yesterday how much I love and adore this man and how much I will miss him when he’s gone.

    He’s amazing. I met him once, too. I was surprised how short he is compared to me. But I love him and I will be so upset when it’s his time to leave us.
