From the Old English, “bi,” (thoroughly) and “halden” (to hold).
Not just to see with your eyes, but to hold with intention and attention.
There is so much beauty, so much bounty, to behold.
As the thick air of summer flees in the first cool hours of an autumn morning, may my heart be refreshed and my eyes be awakened by all the good that’s been placed within my embrace. By grace, the bountiful blessings that I can take hold of and know in my head and heart.
May you, too, hold each moment thoroughly.
