Today Is My Birthday

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Yesterday we celebrated MLK’s birthday. Several candidates announced a presidential bid yesterday. Most if not all of those candidates are pro-abortion. Today is my birthday.

Today is also the anniversary of the horribly bad Roe v. Wade legislation which become law in 1973.

I’m not marching for life today. We did that last Friday at the annual March for Life where I was blessed to do the closing prayer. However, I am praying; and blogging.

Don’t be fooled y’all. Abortion is “a pig in a poke”. [Means something that is bought or accepted without knowing its value or seeing it first; an old fashioned saying from a 68 year old woman. Indulge me.]

Today, on my birthday, I’m praying for God to end the scourge of crimes against humanity with abortion at the top of the list. Today I’m not judging anyone. I’m just praying. Why? Because I’m post abortive; repentant and redeemed.

I can’t help wondering how long we will have to deal with the dichotomy of killing innocent babies in the womb [and often maiming their mothers in the process] and calling it good?

Meanwhile, we are fighting over a wall.

Actually building a security wall to assist in protecting American citizens as well as serving innocent immigrants seeking a better life is a good idea. That wall is a practicality.

On the other hand, tearing down the walls of hatred and bigotry in our hearts; that’s also a good idea. After all, we are not separate races; we are not color blind. We are one blood, one human race. [Acts 17:26]

While on yesterday some candidates cited MLK as inspiration for running for president in 2020, they seem to forget that MLK was a prophet and Bible preacher. To use his name and then promote abortion (as some if not all of those candidates do) and other crimes against humanity is contradictory.

During this season I often share LET FREEDOM RING. It’s a song I wrote in 1973, the year Roe v. Wade emerged to wreak havoc resulting in the deaths of over 60 million babies in the ensuing years.

Today is my birthday y’all. Pray with me that God will let justice run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. [Amos 5:24] LET FREEDOM RING.

Let Freedom Ring for Everyone

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

While Independence Day, July 4th, is usually celebrated with bar-b-que cookouts, family gatherings, those kinds of things, there is much beyond the celebratory efforts that demand our prayers. We must give credence to the importance of justice and independence across the spectrum.

Remember, we just celebrated Juneteenth last month. Coming up on August 28, I Have a Dream Day will mark the anniversary of the famous speech MLK gave in 1963 where he noted that there was a check marked ‘Insufficient Funds’; and that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have not been achieved for all of God’s children.

Here in America we are blessed to have a president who believes in the sanctity of life, from the womb to the tomb. There’s a lot of work going forth out of Washington and around America to end the war in the womb and the human trafficking in this nation and around the world.

At Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone often talks about electing public officials who can ‘tell the difference between serving the public and killing the public.

On Independence Day there’s so much that we have to be thankful for; like family, home, health, and good friends. Someone blessed me with a flag while I was on the road. As we see in the selfie, it’s a lovely flag. I’m grateful for the sentiment. God bless America.

Let’s pray for President Trump as he appoints a new Supreme Court Justice who will further the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit happiness. Let Freedom Ring for Everyone!

During the holidays, I reflect on the many lessons learned from my elders, Guardians of the King Family Legacy. My dad, Rev. AD King and my mother, Naomi Ruth Barber King, Granddaddy, Daddy King, Martin Luther King, Jr. will ever remain part of my American Dream.

These are memories, hopes and dreams that we celebrate this season. Let’s never forget that we are One Blood/One Human race with the unique opportunity to “learn to live together as brothers [and sisters]” and not perish together as fools.

Let’s pray for liberty and justice for everyone; enjoy a safe and blessed Independence Day!
