The Difference A Year Makes


Not sure anyone will read this… But I will write it anyway. Time has a way about it, mysterious, fleeting, healing, and as we age, the ability to have us doing double-takes on everything from gas prices to the kid getting married we used to babysit.

I have gone through many changes in the last year, as I’m sure you have and although things are going better now…well emotionally I’m still stuck a bit. In time I know my emotions will heal and get tossed in the wind and probably down the meat grinder. Though, intellectually I know that my emotions are going to go through these gyrations, and I need to focus instead on eternal truths that are unshakable… still, I find myself succumbing once again to the roller coaster in spite of the truths I supposedly know.

Hang on to life and all its ups and downs I think, and try to capture in the un-remarkable pauses the joy that is life itself.



About JT

I am a happily married man with 6 children and have an autoimmune disease. I hope to share my story and explore others' stories and perhaps together both of our lives will be enhanced.

  1. Good to see you’re still kick’n, JT. Not sure what your journey has been, but I had the blessing of a year sabbatical with God while recovering from back surgery and it took me to a whole new level. I only mention this because life is funny, you’ve been on some kind of journey and so have I. Possibly very different journeys, but both leading somewhere. I have shared a lot about mine in my “Gotham” articles, I hope we get to hear more about yours. And I hope you find yourself in a good place. The journey is never over till God brings it full circle, and it has not come full circle until it works to your good. Amen.

      Hello my friend,,, sorry I have been out of the loop and missed much obviously. And… the journey hasn’t come full circle yet. Thanks for your encouraging words Don!

    I’m glad to see you back and apparently doing well. Emotions can be rough beasts, at times. Here’s my prayer for you: “God, be with JT through the ups and down, the changes, the stuckness, and all that comes his way. Nothing is outside your grasp. Let your presence be his comfort.”
