Entering New Phase of Life

Monday September 19, 2011

Well, it’s been awhile since I wrote in my jlog. There are times in life when an event happens that changes ones life. Graduating from high school and entering the world of being away from parents seems to be one of those life-changing experiences. When you are single and you meet that very special person that you want to spend the rest of your life with is another life-changing experience. Choosing to have a baby or choosing to adopt a baby or two or three would be considered one of those experiences. These are positive life-changing experiences, but there are also negative experiences such as having a relationship go south or having a spouse die or a child die would be considered life-changing experiences.

For me the last three weeks have counted as a life-changing experience as I have entered into a new relationship with a very special person that I have asked to marry me and she fortunately said yes. Her name is Nadine and we have chosen to have a Christmas wedding as we are having her three children (two boys and a girl) and my three children (two girls and a boy) be with us as we share our vows before God and in the presence of our family members. Here is a picture of Nadine when we went to Norfolk to have her meet my two daughters a couple of months ago.

Our wedding date is December 17, 2011 and we are planning for just a family gathering and sometime in January 2012 we will have a reception for our family and friends.  There are so many things that have happened that this is truly a God directed thing.

I am going to get back to jlogging which I love, but wanted you to know what had been happening to the lack of posts in the last three weeks.  Continue to be faithful in walking on this journey with our Savior.

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.
