Steven Charleston writes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That sounds right to me. It means that if I want to see beauty around me, I need to be a beholder. I need to open my eyes. I need to look for the beautiful every day. Instead of walking with my head down, lost in my worries and focused on work, I can look up to see the beauty of God’s creation, the beauty in simple acts of kindness, the beauty in the face of the person speaking to me. How beautiful life is, that precious dream of breath, if only we have the eyes to see it, and the vision to behold its endless blessing.”

Be a ‘beholder’ today. Soak up the beauty of the world around you. In prayer, name your gratitude to God.
