conspiracy musings

“All that happens is as habitual and familiar as roses
in spring and fruit in the summer.
True too of disease, death, defamation, and conspiracy—and
all that delights or gives pain to fools.”

Marcus Aurelius

(apple blossoms /Julie Cook/ 2020)

Now you should know I don’t believe in aliens.

No area 51…no code blue book.

And I don’t necessarily believe in ghosts…

But… I do believe in spiritual warfare…
meaning…demons/evil and angels/heavenly are defintily real.


The jury remains out on this whole virus business.

Where are the real power players during all of this?
Have we heard from George Soros?
Hillary or Bill?

Where are those who believe they wield world power and domination?

It does make for intriguing thoughts while one is confined to quarters going on
now nearly 5 weeks, with a houseful of demanding family.

China seems now almost giddy.
Free and ready to rally en masse.

All the while our stock market rides a daily roller coaster and our
fellow Americans “screw” one another to the wall over essentials such as toilet paper
and Lysol.

To mask or not to mask…that is the question.

How does such a virus make such rounds in such a short and narrow window?

There is a southern county in our state that has experienced some of the highest
numbers of cases and deaths.
It is not near a metropolitan area, yet it has maintained a consistency with Fulton County,
home to Atlanta…

It is all so strange and surreal.

And is it not odd that we may readily go to and from various stores and businesses
albeit at qued distances…yet our houses of worships, are deemed by law, forbidden?

If ever we needed a church to open its doors to those who might wish to pray
or simply sit and ponder…it is now!

Yet faith and the observance of such is suddenly deemed non-essential.

Oh the irony in such thinking…

And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.
Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,
‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart,
but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer,
believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 11:22-24

    You were praying and worshipping as you wrote this, but I understand where you are coming from.

    We must continue to encourage each other through our blogging. People are starting to lose hope and instead of seeing the good that’s coming from this are only focusing on the bad. Politics continue as usual and our president gets blamed for all of it. still this entire Lenten season has given us time to reflect and meditate on the wonders of it. We’ll get through it and I pray we’ll become more caring because of it.

  4. What??! You don’t believe in Area 51? It seems rather obvious to me that the aliens are quite real and the Gov has been hiding it from us for our own protection. I mean, can you even imagine how much toilet paper we’d try to buy if we thought this was an intergalactic event?? Yikes! 🙂

    I don’t know what to make of all this, Julie. It’s all gotten very strange and surreal, as you say. All I can prescribe right now is more Jesus. A pastor used to tell me, the answer for every question is just “Jesus.” Makes me laugh, but that’s very true. We do tend to focus on the questions and the problems, rather than on the solution.

    • HA—it is probably all of the aliens who have made off with our TP—or better—China, who will in turn sell it back to us at triple the price—oy vay!
      And you are right—we need Jesus!
      I wish more of those in the business would rally the fold!

    Strange and surreal indeed.
    I keep catching myself repeating throughout the day, “This too shall pass.”
    I had no idea how often I was repeating this to myself in my quiet thoughts until I actually had a REAl quiet moment. This blip caught me off guard and I recognized I’d been filling all the quiet space in my head with this Mantra. I suppose it has been a much needed salve to calm my worry – but I really am ready for it to at last….pass!
