Taking a Sabbatical


The last six or so months have been a whirlwind of activity for the Gorton clan.  A business was sold.  Two houses were sold.  Two houses were boxed up for a move.  One house was bought.  A move from Arizona to Colorado was initiated with all of our belongings.

A heart procedure was performed in Phoenix due to a 95% blockage of my LAD artery (my widow maker artery) the first part of December.  All of our children traveled to Colorado from all over the United States to celebrate Christmas with us.  (Not all of them are in this picture)

A wedding was performed by me for my middle child after Christmas.  Shall I go further?

All of this activity and more caused me to hold back on writing in my jlog.  I write today, the last day of 2018 and am extremely grateful for the 3 sales, two moves, excellent doctors, wonderful children, and a new place (Castle Rock, Colorado) to continue our journey in a place where my roots began.

I have so much to be thankful for as I look back.  More is in store for me and my family and I pray that as I have been blessed this year, those of you reading this will experience the same blessing of God’s direction.  On this journey, there is and will be many turns in the road, but God is the one who gives guidance to those who seek Him.

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.
