In Our World Torn Apart, Mothers Matter Most

In Our World Torn Apart, Mothers Matter Most

At best, Mothers’ Day is always a poignant occasion; some are honoring elderly parents and remembering deceased mothers. If you’re like me, many can’t even physically attend regular church services with our parents and families due to COVID19.

Thank God for digital access to things that matter most.

Recently, with COVID19 looming globally, and in America with constant threats of more "race wars" abounding, almost everyone, me included, opens with "are you safe?"

Inadvertently we find ourselves ending our conversations and encounters with "Stay safe."

Today, while the news is of filled with the COVID-19 pandemic, please let’s try to remember to be faith-filled rather than fearful — replacing panic with prayer.

The late evangelist, the Rev. Billy Graham once said that "We need a God Pill."

I couldn’t agree more.

Thanks be to God, we still live in a Great and Praying America.

Here in Georgia, and echoing nationally, is the outcry against yet another racially motivated crime against humanity with the brutal murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

I find myself listening over and over to the 30 second message of "One Blood" by my uncle, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King was right. "We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools."

We really are one human race, one blood, as according to Acts 17: 26-28 in scripture.

Neither are we color blind.

We can learn to live and love our neighbors as ourselves — with our eyes wide open.

Let us be grateful that our president and many Americans have not bowed, nor bent our knees to Baals. Crimes against humanity are being exposed as the swamp continues to be drained. ("We don’t worship government, we worship God.” – President Donald J. Trump.)

A few days ago, my 88-year-old mother showed me her application for an absentee ballot.

According to her, senior citizens are courted by political agents during election seasons. 

Thus, gifts of food, transportation, and other favors are offered in the guise of helping our senior citizens. Dr. Ken Blackwell writes of an underlying motive of political agents who reach out to our seniors with great persuasion, in an attempt to sway votes, with pay-to-play.

In recent a recent opinion piece, Dr. Ken Blackwell observed, "Yet the sacred right of today’s seniors to have their political choices honored at the ballot box are at high risk because of vote fraud."

So, while I’m celebrating Mothers’ Day with my mother, I’m also praying that her vote won’t be violated.

In case you missed it, here’s my Mothers’ Day show, first broadcast on EndAbortion.TV.

Watch here now.

“Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!” – Matthew 6:22-23 MSG.

Dr. Alveda C. King grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. She is director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. Her family home in Birmingham, Ala., was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Ky. Alveda herself was jailed during the open housing movement. Read Dr. Alveda C.
