It seems to me that all of us have different aspects of God’s creation that we are drawn to.  For Nadine, it’s different kinds of flowers and in particular, pansies and Mexican roses.  For others it’s sunsets, or sunrises.  For others it’s rock formations.  It could be different kinds of architecture.  Large animals.  Mountain trails.  Ocean beaches.  Wilderness experiences.  Cloud formations.  It may vary depending on where we are and what we are doing.

About 2 months ago when Nadine was up north and I was in the valley, I looked out of the sliding glass door and saw one of my favorite creations of God.  A family of quail.


It was a momma and 7 chicks eating seeds in our grass.  I just looked out the window and was amazed at the wonder of 7 little baby quail at peace with their mother, knowing that she was protecting them so they didn’t have to worry.  Then I looked a little closer and saw the father up on Carter’s lacrosse goal.


A mother and father working together as they together raised their family.

If we only open our eyes to His Creation we can learn so much about how He wants us to live and operate in what He has created.  On this journey as we open our eyes, many truths can come forth for us to learn and grow.

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.
