Let’s Celebrate Motherhood Without the Politics This Year

Friday, May 11th, 2018

180511 blog imageFor some, the call to Motherhood is biological; adoption beckons others; and beyond these important roles, God calls some to be “spiritual” moms. It is my prayer that we as human beings will set aside all political platforms this season, and just give thanks to God for the gift of mothers.

While it’s true that every woman isn’t a mother, it can be understood that every mother is a woman. Furthermore, everyone who has been born, past, and present; all of us, male and female, were birthed by a mother.

“When Jesus therefore saw his [biological] mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, Jesus said unto his [supernatural birth] mother, ‘Woman, behold thy son!’ Then Jesus said to the disciple, ‘Behold thy mother!’ And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” John 19:26-27

We can see from this passage that the role of mother opens doors to many possibilities.

This year on Mothers’ Day, women who are also mothers will be celebrated around the world. As mothers, we walk different spiritual paths. We are enjoying different seasons of life. What brings us together in celebration is this divine bond called Motherhood. Of all the women’s rights given to us by God, being a mother is the most magnificent. Parenting has been said to be the great equalizer connecting us beyond race, religion, social status and income level. What joins us together now and forever is that we are all in the same human tribe: Born of One Blood. (Acts 17:26)

“Adam named his wife Eve, because she was the mother of all human beings.” Genesis 3:20 (GNT)

“Children are a gift from God.” Psalm 127:3

“Her children rise up and call her blessed.” Proverbs 31:28

Of course, everyone living is special in God’s eyes; yet on this special day we honor our mothers; past, present and future.

The awesome power within the bodies and hearts of women to bring children into this world and nurture them by birth or adoption is miraculously within humanity to acknowledge and celebrate. The career of Motherhood has a never-ending salary valued at: “Priceless”. Of all the women’s rights given to us by God, being a mother is the most magnificent. Let us thank God as we “Celebrate Motherhood.”

Happy Mother’s Day

On this very special day when mothers are recognized and remembered for all they have given up for their children I wish to say to you, “Have a blessed Mother’s Day.” And I also send up a prayer for all those who have lost a child or children through any means; I pray that God will give you strength to heal your pain and any scars of your loss.

I found this poem and I hope you enjoy it as I did.

MOTHER’S LOVE
by Unknown Poet

Her love is like
an island in life’s ocean,
vast and wide
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the wind, the rain, the tide.

Tis bound on the north by Hope,
By Patience on the West,
By tender Counsel on the South
And on the East by Rest.

Above it like a beacon light
Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer;
And thro’ the changing scenes of life
I find a haven there.

Happy Mother’s Day

My Angry Mother

Friday, May 8th, 2015

My mother was not only angry in 1950. She was pregnant and scared; seeking a D&C. Thank God my Granddaddy Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. had seen me in a dream in 1947; and he was looking and waiting for me.

Granddaddy and Daddy promised to help Mother through that first unexpected pregnancy. I was born to A. D. and Naomi Ruth Barber King on January 22, 1951.

Over the years, Mother recovered from her anger, finding grace in Jesus Christ.

If my family had followed the abortion friendly path prescribed below, I and my siblings may never have been born.

“Feminist theologian” Kristine Holmgren writes at the Huffington Post: “If you were born before women had access to safe, affordable, accessible abortion, chances are your mother was an angry mother.” She argues that the use of abortion and contraception can eliminate “angry mothers” and concludes, “This Mothers Day, I challenge American women to renew their commitment to responsible, thoughtful motherhood. Let’s protect our liberties, reclaim safe, accessible abortion and contraception as our birthright. This year – let us commit to a new future and a new promise. No more angry mothers.”

During the years of my life, I made some scared and angry decisions, including having two of what was pitched to me as “safe, legal and rare abortions.” Those abortions cost me three lives including my subsequent miscarriage.

“Be angry and sin not!”

Anger is one thing, dead babies are quite another thing altogether. Over the years, I have come to understand that I never needed those abortions and miscarriage. I needed help.

Granddaddy MLK, Sr. rescued me again in 1975. He and my son’s father promised to help me if I wouldn’t abort my next baby. I believed them, thank God.

Planned Parenthood and the entire abortion industry are wrong. Abortion is not a Civil Right. A woman has a right to choose what she does with her body; the baby is not her body.

How can the dream survive if we murder our children?

Please believe me; abortion and harmful contraceptives are dream killers. Abortion doesn’t cure anger; abortion brings death and anguish.

If we really want to help angry mothers and their children, we must offer them love, not abortion.

Choose life.

Happy Mothers’ Day

“Yes, you have been with me from birth; from my mother’s womb you have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising you!” (Psalms 71:6 NLT)

Today the wombs of mothers are under siege. Yet God in His infinite wisdom still brings forth life from the seed of our fathers and the wombs of our mothers. Let us thank God for mothers and motherhood.

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” -Washington Irving-
