I love working with our bees!I'm watching an eastern bluebird couple go in and out of the birdhouse my son-in-law built and posted for me. There is plenty of coming and going, so I suspect there are hatchlings demanding to be fed. It will be fun to watch them. I hope to see them fledge. God is so clearly revealed in His creation. The only creatures who defy Him, after the fallen angels, are we human creatures who persist in rebelling. The saddest thing is to see so many deform their reason and function at the level of feelings and passions. They scratch where it itches and live for their bellies and their genitals. What a pathetic way to live!
- The bees in our little apiary are working hard. I've already collected eight frames of capped honey for the club harvest at the end of the month. That's about 25 pounds of honey. I hope to get more before we finish. We always leave plenty for the bees to overwinter and also feed sugar syrup in the fall. Two weeks ago I split the big hive in our yard that had lots and lots of bees. That left one hive without a queen. The queenless split has, hopefully, been busy rearing a new queen which takes about 15 days, then another week or so for her to take her maiden flight, be fertilized by many drones, and return to the hive and begin laying up to 1000 eggs a day. (Isn't God wonderful in his little creatures?)
- A recent study raises serious concerns about the safety of the "vaccine." Here's the abstract from the study, The Safety of COVID-19 Vaccinations—We Should Rethink the Policy: Background: COVID-19 vaccines have had expedited reviews without sufficient safety data. We wanted to compare risks and benefits. Method: We calculated the number needed to vaccinate (NNTV) from a large Israeli field study to prevent one death. We accessed the Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) database of the European Medicines Agency and of the Dutch National Register (lareb.nl) to extract the number of cases reporting severe side effects and the number of cases with fatal side effects. Result: The NNTV is between 200–700 to prevent one case of COVID-19 for the mRNA vaccine marketed by Pfizer, while the NNTV to prevent one death is between 9000 and 50,000 (95% confidence interval), with 16,000 as a point estimate. The number of cases experiencing adverse reactions has been reported to be 700 per 100,000 vaccinations. Currently, we see 16 serious side effects per 100,000 vaccinations, and the number of fatal side effects is at 4.11/100,000 vaccinations. For three deaths prevented by vaccination we have to accept two inflicted by vaccination. Conclusions: This lack of clear benefit should cause governments to rethink their vaccination policy.

One reason was that complications following vaccination didn't necessarily show causality. That's what the "experts" are saying these days about every adverse event. So if you get massive blood clots a week after vaccination like my brother-in-law it's just a coincedence.]
- The magnitude 6.0 earthquake in California east of San Francisco yesterday triggered this question for me -- is God trying to shake us awake? Read Matthew 24 about the signs of the times. Jesus doesn't mention earthquakes, but the Book of Revelation is full of them! See Revelation 6:12, 8:5, 11:13, and 16:18. The prophets of the Old Testament predicted earthquakes as a chastisement and Mary revealed in apparitions that earthquakes would be used to punish mankind (or shake us up?). I read an interesting post this morning by Roman Catholic Imperialist about Mary's warnings at LaSalette where the visionaries saw her weeping bitterly. Here's just one of Mary's warnings: “Water and fire will give the earth's globe convulsions and terrible earthquakes which will swallow up mountains, cities, etc..." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
- Last item -- This from Dr. Mercola indicating that the "vaccine" was in development before COVID-19 was an issue. Hmmm.... COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate Was Released Prior to Pandemic The confidential disclosure agreement relays a material transfer agreement between the providers — Moderna, NIAID and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The providers agreed to transfer “mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidates developed and jointly-owned by NIAID and Moderna” to the university’s investigator.5 ... At this point, some backstory information is more than relevant. We know with great certainty that researchers at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) had access to and were doing gain-of-function research on coronaviruses, and manipulating them to become more infectious and to more easily infect humans. We also know that they collaborated with scientists in the U.S. and received funding from the National Institutes of Health for such research. Baric, who signed the material transfer agreement to investigate the mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidate before there was a known COVID-19 pandemic, pioneered techniques for genetically manipulating coronaviruses... Baric worked closely with Shi Zhengli, Ph.D., the director of WIV’s Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases, also known as “bat woman,” on research using genetic engineering to create a “new bat SARS-like virus ... that can jump directly from its bat hosts to humans.” According to Gøtzsche:7 “Their work focused on enhancing the ability of bat viruses to attack humans so as to ‘examine the emergence potential.’ In 2015, they created a novel virus by taking the backbone of the SARS virus replacing its spike protein with one from another bat virus known as SHC014-CoV. This manufactured virus was able to infect a lab culture of cells from the human airways. They wrote that scientific review panels might deem their research too risky to pursue but argued that it had the potential to prepare for and mitigate future outbreaks. However, the value of gain-of-function studies in preventing the COVID-19 pandemic was negative, as this research highly likely created the pandemic.”...The rest of the story, as the saying goes, is history. December 12, 2019, Amy Petrick, Ph.D., NIAID’s technology transfer specialist, signed the agreement, along with Dr. Barney Graham, an investigator for NIAID, whose signature is undated.8 May 12, 2020, just months later, Moderna was granted a fast-track designation for its mRNA-1273 vaccine by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration....December 18, 2020 — about one year after the material transfer agreement was signed — the FDA issued emergency use authorization for Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine for use in individuals 18 years of age and older.10 June 10, 2021, Moderna also filed for emergency use authorization for its COVID-19 shot to be used in U.S. adolescents aged 12 to 17 years.11 Yet, we still have no answers to some glaring questions:12 “It was not until January 9th 2020 that the WHO reported13 Chinese authorities had determined the outbreak was due to a novel coronavirus which later became known as SARS-CoV-2 with the alleged resultant disease dubbed COVID-19. So why was an mRNA coronavirus vaccine candidate developed by Moderna being transferred to the University of North Carolina on December 12th 2019? … Perhaps Moderna and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases would like to explain themselves in a court of law?”
How do we react to all this? The answer begins with the Sign of the Cross. Today we pray the sorrowful mysteries. Let us all be sorry for our sins that have inflicted so much damage on our poor world.
