In the Eye of the Beholder ~ D. L. Morton

"In the Eye of the Beholder" - D. L. Morton

I observed that the English word "behold" contains in it the idea of holding, grasping, clinging, might I suggest, cherishing. What in a sea of images that flood our eyes in a lifetime is worth holding and cherishing? Surely purposeful discernment can guide the looker, and hence the five questions: What beauty did I see in nature today? What beauty did I see in art today? What beauty did I see in words spoken or read today? What truth did I learn today? What good and meaningful work or play did I do today? The answers to this handful of questions contain memories of beauty, truth and goodness to cherish. With a heart full of gratitude, join hands in prayer as an individual or family, since we are relational and dependent beings.
