Created for Family

God makes a home for the lonely Ps.68:6 NASB

God sets the lonely in families Ps.68:6 NIV

God's heart is for us to not be alone. He has created us and made us for family. He has really shown Himself to be true in this area of my life lately. I have an amazing family in Houston/Austin which consists of my mom, dad, and sister Lisa. They are THE BEST!!! :) Unfortunately they don't live five minutes away. God wants me to have a family here in College Station also.

He's been so great to provide me with it. He continues to give me peace about being at Living Hope. I've met some amazing people who are in love with God's word and walking in His ways. I'm thankful for Amanda, Bekah, Julie, Jenn, my new mentor, Hope Group, the Nicaragua's crazy how in just a matter of weeks God has placed this lonely one (me!) in a new home.

I'm so thankful!

Here we go!!!

So, I'm excited about this blog thing. I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep friends and family members updated with what's going on in the life and thoughts of Julie Sargent. :)

I was thinking about the title of my blog and decided to go with "What a beautiful day..." :) I think that so often we fly through the day with our mind on our worries, busy schedules, and what is to come tomorrow that we don't see the beauty that today offers. I want my blog to be a place where beauty is acknowledged, pondered, and sought after. May we be able to have eyes that see beauty all around us today. Beauty in the people in front of us, in nature, in pets like Toby :), and in the sweet fellowship with God that is knit into it all. Pretty great day, huh!?
