What does it mean to “behold”?
It means to “be” — be present, be engaged, be aware.
It means to “hold” — keep a focused gaze, set the eye on, see into.
In order to experience “wonder” we need to “behold”.
A friend reminded me of these truths with a flower and a word.
What does this flower tell me about God?
One flower, three magnificent petals.
Three in One.
I carried the word in my pocket all day.
It helped me see what is right before my eyes.
