It’s That Time Of Year

It's That Time Of Year

Nadine, the dog whisperer

It is so crazy that in some parts of the world people are preparing for winter, putting on winter windows, getting the snow blower greased up, putting away the patio furniture, and pulling out the winter clothes including the gloves, coats, and hats with ear muffs.

It is just the opposite from most of the U. S here in Scottsdale. We are coming out of our dens where the air conditioning has been blasting non stop for 5 plus months. We are coming into our summer where we can come outside and enjoy warm (not hot) weather. The convertible tops are coming off and gardens are being planted replete with pansies and petunias.

It’s like The Lord in many respects.  There times of winter where it seems that nothing is growing and we are imprisoned in the coldness of our circumstances with little hope of emerging from the darkness of life.  As we seek Him, he comes to us and begins to show us hope for the future and for our lives and spring begins to break through like the daffodils and tulips.  What is important to remember about the Lord is that there will always be spring and summer with hope and color if we only keep our focus on Him.

So today as we got all the flowers planted in the rich miracle grow soil, Rejoice no matter what circumstances you are experiencing because God has something special in store for those who seek him.

Read James 1:2-4 and II Chronicles 16:9 for words of encouragement.  BLOOM where you are planted today.

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.
