A post about my Prophet

I found out about his death last night and immediately felt happy for him. I know that this is what he wanted and although I will miss him, I know he is happier where he is. I remember very clearly sitting in my living room some 13 years ago watching the General Conference where he would be sustained the Prophet of the Church. I don't remember a ton of details, but I prayed to know if he was a true prophet and I do remember getting a very strong confirmation that he was truly a prophet called of God. I don't know how to describe it, I just knew and I have never doubted it since. I have always loved to hear him speak. He is always so uplifting and always makes me feel good about being the woman I want to be. I always feel the urge to be better and kinder after I hear him speak. Tonight I was reading my scriptures and I happened to be reading in D&C section 21 that is God organizing his church and the role of the prophet (coincidence, there's no such thing). As I read it, I again felt a very strong confirmation that Gordan B. Hinckley was and is a man of God. I feel unbelievably lucky to know this. It has made my life so much easier and made me so much happier. I know that God just wants us to be happy and I am thankful to him for letting us have a "mouthpiece" to let us know how. I wish I had the courage to share it with others. I want the whole world to know. How much better the world would be if we all listened and followed the living prophet. He was such a great man that did so many great things. Truly a disciple of Christ. He will always hold a very special place in my heart.
