CSN Sunday - LightWing Messages for Mother’s Day - 5/8/2022
The Little Children and Jesus
People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:13-16 (NIV)
Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow—to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him and to hold fast to him— then the LORD will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. Deuteronomy 11:18-23 (NIV)
Dear CSN newsletter readers,
The Citizen Sentinels Network has maintained a project, originally deemed the David Project, since 2018. We move into our fourth year of existence, still within a hostile political climate. For those readers of faith, the Messages of Light originated as a genuine inspiration from Heavenly Father. It was initiated to bring Light into the dark in such a time as this. We have evolved into a more full ‘ministry’ in the LightWing Mission that became clear to me over time. And, especially at this time in our nation and in the world, there is clear and present danger that requires the faithful to hold boldly and securely onto the foundations that are rooted in faith.
The family is at the core of the society and mothers are at the core of the family. It is no real mystery that the enemies of life, the enemies of liberty, and the enemies of the enjoyment of the fruits of freedom want to tear down the core of our beloved society. Today we honor mothers of
all races and all countries. The suffering is unbearable at times. But the joys of life must be advanced. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Moms out there!!!
If you consider the messages in our Sunday edition relevant or meaningful and know others who might value them as well, consider yourself a Light mail messenger and please pass this newsletter on to those whom you feel could welcome it. Or simply, please receive it yourselves.
May God’s blessings flow into and through all of our readers and all of your loved ones today and throughout this week.
The “Message of Light” endeavor had been part of the “David Project” that originated as a genuine inspiration from our Heavenly Father, initiated to bring Light into the dark in this time. The project developed from 2018, and as we approach our third anniversary of existence, we have formally elevated the “David Project” to the more formal “LightWing Mission,” my personal ministry, which I had announced in previous messages.
These messages are freely offered and sent to you as part of the “LightWing Mission.” Please receive today’s messages as a gift from those who care. They are only words being offered, freely; yet, some contain a deep message of faith, or a much deeper expression of heart that readers can hopefully receive into their lives. As it has been written: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18 - KJV
May we honor the mothers and fathers and respect them when they raise their children in the ways of the Lord. May we help the children and help guide them to seek His Kingdom and His righteousness in these days we have been given to enjoy upon this Earth.
“The Value of Motherhood from An Ancient Perspective”
By Dennis Jamison
May 8, 2022
With the recent reverberations over the leak of the SCOTUS draft opinion regarding the overturning of Roe v Wade. There are numerous implications and outcomes from such an insidious invasion of Supreme Court integrity. Nevertheless, Americans live in such a time in which all of our major governmental institutions are under attack from within, so it is not a total surprise. The Left has also politicized and undermined traditional holidays, even Mother’s Day has been a target of the Left or Marxists like other holidays.
When one thinks comprehensively about the abortion issue which is at the heart of the recent Supreme Court deliberations, the core of abortion is not only the negation of a potential baby being born, it is also the negation of a woman to become that baby’s mother – the overt negation of the value of motherhood itself. Although those on the Left, or useful idiots, still offer limited lip support for motherhood, Mother’s Day must honestly hold little value to Leftists and the immoral minions.
Today in America, near the beginning of the 21st century, citizens are facing a definitive choice over who we are as a people and as a culture. Although this may be considered an interesting perception, many Americans may not easily grasp that the nation, as we know it, is facing an existential crisis. Our actions or inactions as a people indicate the kind of human beings we are, as well as the kind of culture we prefer to live in and create around us. This may sometimes become a bit easier to understand when the values predominant in two or more cultures are compared. In the comparison between values evident in different cultures, people are often able to get a better or broader perspective on reality.
With the intent to gain a better or broader perspective on contemporary American culture, Mother’s Day, or the value placed upon motherhood, can serve as a convenient measurement. Several nations in the world follow the tradition established in the United States of celebrating Mother’s Day, the second Sunday of May. Unfortunately, tradition may give way to an eroded value of motherhood in the next century. Despite all the Mother’s Day cards and gifts offered to Mom, on this day, America currently suffers from the breakdown of the traditional family. And the core of a family is the moher, and the traditional family is the core of a stable society. On such a day it is hard to confront the reality that one of the aspects of the breakdown of social stability in any society is the diminishment of the value of motherhood itself.
This is not about what may be wrong with Mom as a person, but about whether daughters or sons truly honor their mothers on Mother’s Day as well as the value of motherhood. A simple measurement is how many young people today are choosing to have families of their own. The value of motherhood in America has been maligned in recent decades in many spheres of our contemporary culture. As a result young women give serious pause to creating a family. There are many millennials who do not see the need, or have the desire, to start a family. Starting a family is old fashioned or irrelevant for people who are centered upon themselves and their temporary gratification of their sexual needs.
An increasingly prevalent view is that becoming a mother, or motherhood itself, holds less value than remaining unmarried and childless. Even more alarming is the attitude that an undesirable pregnancy is nothing more than a nuisance. Unwanted babies are a problem to be disposed of through abortion. One of the greatest assaults upon motherhood is, in part, is the societal acceptance of abortion as a means of eliminating unplanned children. A majority of younger Americans have grown comfortable with abortion since the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade in 1973. It was a landmark case. This single court decision split Americans into two
basic camps: pro-choice supporters of the amendment, and pro-life opponents. And today,
abortion stands out as one of the most divisive cultural issues in the nation, if not in the world.
Although It may not be clear whether a majority of Americans are unaware of the ongoing reality
of abortion in America, most alert Americans were conscious of the annoying news media, on a daily basis, bombarding the public with the number of COVID-related deaths (that is not being done with the adverse vaccine events or even vaccine-related death rate). Imagine if the MSM blseted the American citizens with how many babies were killed due to abortions every day. causing people to be fearful of the spread of the disease (without reference to the actual danger). However, comparative numbers of supposed deaths due to COVID has been calculated to be approximately 802 deaths per day within a certain period.
In an article I wrote during the COVID frenzy, I ran across a shocking article and I’ll simply include a link to it here for the brave of heart. But, it is limited to statistics on abortion from 2016 numbers, there are more recent numbers that could be plugged into the equation…
The COVID calculations were based upon 2020 statistics, and the irony is that the actual numbers of COVID-related deaths have been revised downwards as true measurements were insisted upon. It only makes the deaths of the unborn babies stand out even more as a planned genoicide especially against black and hispanic populations. The numbers are staggering and represent a measurement of America’s tolerance of such daily atrocities. Though the tragedy of an untimely death is horrible, even the comparison of the fear and frenzy generated over COVID is a genuine statement of social hypocrisy when compared to the atrocities permitted with self-directed killing of one’s child. It is not just inhumane, the practice originates from Satan.
In stark contrast to this reality is another comparison that could be made. It expresses much about the lack of regard for the value of human life, Native Americans and American Indian peoples held a much deeper regard for motherhood. Looking back at the so-called ‘savages,’ one can see a different reality regarding the value of life in the native societies. Unfortunately, many European descendants in America did not have the desire to take much of the native culture seriously, and in turn, the Indians had little desire to share their innermost attitudes toward life and beliefs with the white population for a number of reasons.
Only over time have some of the innermost beliefs of American Indian peoples seeped out into the wider American culture. Unfortunately, relatively few Americans have experienced actual exposure to such spiritual beliefs or ways of living. In stark contrast to prevailing contemporary societal perspectives on the value of life, the Sioux Indian perspective is a bit different, and also quite refreshing. And, while it may be a bit rare to consider an American Indian view of the value of life or bringing new life into the world, some Americans may find it enlightening. Especially, since most American Indian cultures throughout the Americas respected life and all living things, and from their view, humans were a special part of the Creation.
More specifically, one beautiful expression of high regard for the value of motherhood and the special respect for bringing children into the world, in particular, is found in the writings of Ohiyes’a, a Sioux Indian whose English name became Charles Alexander Eastman, when he converted to Christianity. Ohiyes’a was born in 1858 into the Santee Sioux Tribe of the Dakota nation. He eventually became the first American Indian doctor after graduating from Boston University in 1889. Encouraged to write of his culture, he became a well-known Indian author and from his writings can be gleaned a great amount of insight into Sioux culture.
Ohiyes’a wrote numerous books concerning the perspectives of his people about life, and in 1911, he had one of his books published which was entitled The Soul of an Indian: an Interpretation. Here is a representation of some of the deeper aspects that can be linked to the Sioux or Dakota nation’s perspective on the value of motherhood:
The Great Song of Creation
Our education begins in our mother’s womb. Her attitude and secret meditations are such as to instill into the receptive soul of the unborn child the love of the Great Mystery and a sense of kinship with all creation.
A pregnant Indian woman often chooses one of the great individuals of her family and tribe as a model for her child. This hero is daily called to mind. Gathers from tradition all of his noted deeds and daring exploits, and rehearses them to herself when alone. In order that the impression might be more distinct, she avoids company. She isolates herself as much as possible, and wanders prayerful in the stillness of the great woods, or on the bosom of the untrodden prairie, not thoughtlessly, but with an eye to the impressions received from the grand and beautiful scenery.
To her poetic mind the imminent birth of her child prefigures the advent of a great spirit – a hero, or the mother of heroes –a thought conceived in the virgin breast of primeval nature, and dreamed out in a hush broken only by the sighing of the pine tree or the thrilling orchestra of a distant waterfall.
And when the day of her days in her life dawns – the day in which there is to be new life, the miracle of whose making has been entrusted to her – she seeks no human aid. She has trained and prepared in body and mind for this, her holiest duty, ever since she can remember.
She meets the ordeal of childbirth alone, where no curious or pitying eyes might embarrass her; where all nature says to her spirit: ‘It is love! It is love! The fulfilling of life!
When, at last, a sacred voice comes to her out of the silence, and a pair of eyes
open upon her in the wilderness, she knows with joy that she has borne well her part in the great song of creation!
Ohiyes’a and his people were once considered heathens and savages. Today, he is considered to be the first American Indian to write and publish American history from the Indian viewpoint. His words open up a deeper insight into the Sioux culture, and more specifically into the native people’s respect and love for life itself. Such a reverence sharply contrasts with the thought originating from the “Progressive” Left, which denies and undermines the values of Life with
the Pro-Choice devaluation of motherhood and which dehumanizes the unborn baby in the mother’s womb. Progressives are the ones who view the unborn baby as a “thing,” and not a human being. It is a sad commentary on American contemporary culture. Now after over 100 years from the days of Ohiyes’a, Americans should consider who we are as a people and what is the true cost of “progress?”
Regardless, from those of us who still value motherhood – Happy Mother’s Day to Moms!
From the Desk of Dr. Ben Carson:
I feel like our culture has forgotten—or ignored—some very important and basic lessons when it comes to the development of human life.
Our society has been infected by an anti-life ideology, treating its most vulnerable members as disposable objects. Abortion that was once thought of as a last resort in a medical emergency has become the new normal.
Medicine tells us that life begins at the moment of conception. It also tells us when an unborn baby develops a heartbeat, brainwaves, and nervous system. Yet, despite all of this, the unborn are not treated as though they are alive or even human.
As a surgeon, I have operated on infants pre-birth. I can assure you that they are very much alive.
Dr. Ben Carson, Founder and Chairman of American Cornerstone Institute
Life is a precious gift that has been given to us from our creator. No person is disposable, and every life is precious according to Him.
I believe that everyone deserves life, even those who have been denied this right by our society. I believe that together we can make a difference and bring dignity and a voice to the unborn. I also believe that I’m not alone in this belief.
I believe that you believe that too.
I’ve started working with a group of like-minded individuals who are looking to change our culture. We want to build a society that values life but that takes people like you and I making a commitment.
The first step is clearly stating what we believe and what we are willing to do to protect the lives of the unborn. Will you join me today and stand up for those who cannot do it for themselves?
I’ve created a new pro-life pledge; I’d love your support. Would you read the pledge below to see if you align with our shared goals and are willing to commit to fighting for the lives of the unborn?
