Dr. Alveda King: Mothers' Day 2024

Alveda King Ministries
May 10, 2024
ATLANTA, May 10, 2024 /Standard Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Dr. Alveda King, she is available for comment:

    For many years, especially on Mothers' Day, I have meditated on the Virtuous Woman from scripture found in the book of Proverbs chapter 31. I have admired many women who fit the pattern of The Proverbs 31 Woman. My mother, Dr. Naomi Ruth Barber King remains at the top of my list of "sheroes."

    "Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her…" Proverbs 31:8

    This year this scripture has even more meaning, because my blessed mother Dr. Naomi Ruth Barber King transitioned to heaven on March 7, 2024. Of course I miss my mother, mere words cannot express the sense of loss, coupled with the blessed hope that I will see her again in heaven one day.

    My parents, Rev. AD King and Dr. Naomi King loved and blessed me in so many ways during their lifetimes. Daddy was Mama's "Boaz." She was his "Little Girl." While they are united in Heaven, after 72 years, this is my first year without her.

    What remains for me are her memories, and my joys of being a mother and grandmother. I know that mothers everywhere are dealing with trials and triumphs today. So, I lift a prayer of thanksgiving to God for the gift of mothers.
