Isolation Splendor


Welcome! To my virtual bubble;

This special place I’ve worked hard to create.

It’s free from all pain and trouble!

I sit, I scroll, I click, I sift, new reality I replicate!


A slick profile, the Me I want to be; a duplicate.

Perfection that hides all the stubble,

Of the imperfect me, and allows me to insulate,

From all suffering outside Me bubble!

Ingenious, I’m sure you agree?


Welcome! But beware! Don’t say what I won’t hear!

I will block you, disengage, and ignore!

I will start scrolling, searching, find what I will hear!

Validate my opinion, make me feel more…

Sure of world created in my image; to isolate fear;

This bubble I digitally painted as reality tore,

Became too much to handle so, now find me here;

Denying all sorrow, ignoring a bloody war!

Suspending the truth, in chosen ignorance sheer!

I see you’ve done…

    1. I had fun in AZ with my grandsons and a cousin I hadn’t seen in a long time. It was nice to get some sun too. They say now that I have vasospasms triggered by cold and stress. I have an appointment on the 18th to see if there’s anything to be done to make the winter more bearable. I feel sort of like a science experiment but I think I have a more savy doctor now. It’s not as rare as cryoglobulinemia but cryo can be an underlying cause so, it’s still kind of “do I have it or not?” Frustrating but at least they don’t use leaches for everything anymore! lol It could be worse. How are you?

      1. Pace and sleep are important especially, in your super reactive life style. I’ve spent my whole life taking care of children and when they aren’t around, I kind of don’t know how to motivate myself…do pastors have that problem?

      2. I myself as a pastor don’t have that problem that when I’m not around God’s people I lose motivation…actually my disposition is more of an introvert, I could easily be left alone for days with books. It’s my love for people that eventually get me out to minister to people. I don’t know if that makes sense…but it does to me lol.

      3. Yes, it does. You’re a thinker and most of us thinkers like to retreat into a cave for awhile and think. lol If we don’t have any social interaction then we lose the fodder we need for deep thought! I get a spurt of energy when my grandkids are here but when they leave, I collapse. That probably has more to do with pushing myself beyond my physical limits than anything else but still, it is possible to lose our personal purpose in filling the needs of others. Even Jesus had to take some time to tend to His own spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. Pastors need to do that and grammy-moms too. :0)

    1. Thank you, Jim. I think about you and pray for you and your ministry too. My health is better at the moment. I’m very very busy taking care of my grandchildren and beginning the process of moving into town. The silly things we humans do. We work like crazy for most of our live to get things and then we have to figure out what to do with all that ‘stuff’ and downsize back to where we were in the beginning. Earthly treasure not only decays, it weighs a ton. I’m looking forward to less chores. How are you doing?

      1. I’m doing well, trying to enjoy my kids at their young age, they grow so fast! I’m about to go overseas soon in less than two weeks, been preparing like crazy for it. Pray for wisdom and strength with what I am doing. When I take a break I hop on WordPress for a bit…great to hear you are spending time with your grandchildren, what a treasure!

      2. Yes and grandchildren grow up even faster for some reason. The oldest just turned 13. All of my kids are getting so old! I’m happy to pray for you and I hope your trip will be wonderful while also, furthering the cause of Christ. Travel safe.
