Beauty glowing everywhere

There is so much beauty in the world. But we need to open our eyes, stay alert, notice...  For some reason this makes me think of another, less edifying but still memorable prayer from the Episcopal Compline Service:  "Be sober, be watchful.  Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."

I think I'd prefer an alternate admonition: "Be alert, be attentive: beauty glows everywhere like the dawn, seeking hearts to enlighten..."
