The Beauty of Peaks


Nadine and I are on a 3+ week journey that has taken us from Arizona to Colorado to now Wyoming.  We have some wonderful friends that invited us up to their summer-house at the foot of Grand Teton National Park.  We were going to Lacy Washington for Tyler’s college graduation from St. Martins University, so we took them up on their offer. I had been to the Grand Teton National Park with my folks when I wan young, but had forgotten most of what I saw.  Nadine had never been to the park so it truly was a new adventure for both of us.

It took about 8 hours of driving from Grand Junction, Colorado to Jackson, Wyoming and it was well worth the drive.  Over the next two days we saturated our eyes with the beauty of God’s creation with snow-capped peaks, emerging mountain flowers, more rugged peaks, and more yellow and white flowers.  It was breath-taking to take in the sights.  A few pictures below cannot capture what our eyes took in.

We journey through life having opportunities to view some of God’s creation.   When we are given those opportunities, we need to take advantage of it.  Worshipping the creator rather than the creation keeps our focus centered on the source of life and not the results of his choice to create.  We have been truly blessed to see in the last few days what He has created for us to enjoy.

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.
