Snow In May


I have been very quiet over the last several months with the writing of my jlog. I don’t have a good reason except for the fact that I have procrastinated in putting my fingers to my iPad and hence the lack of posts over the last few months. As I was sitting at my desk looking out at the weather we are having, it hit me to put my digits on the keyboard and write a few thoughts regarding the snow I am seeing as I write this.

I have used my snow blower 8 times this year to my joy of cranking on the rope and hearing the sound of power. There are some in Colorado who are groaning at the thought of more snow. Not me. I have reveled in every day it has snowed with the expectation that I might get to start up my power plowed—snowblower that is. I do not have the irrational thought that I will get to use it one more time. The weather report blew that thought out the window. But the beauty of seeing water in white form fall softly to the earth is a wonder that I haven’t gotten over.

On this journey, we have the choice to look at our circumstances from a negative or a positive perspective. We can groan at our circumstances and wish things were different, or we can look at the beauty before us and appreciate the blessings that are right before our eyes. I choose today to look at what’s positive.

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.
