The 7 Wonders of the World

Something to think about - things that we just take it for granted --

The Seven Wonders of the World

A group of Geography students studied the Seven Wonders of the World.
At the end of that section, the students were asked to list what they think were considered to be the present Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was some disagreement,
the following got the most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids,
2. Taj Mahal,
3. Grand Canyon,
4. Panama Canal,
5. Empire State Building,
6. St. Peter's Basilica,
7. China's Great Wall.

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if
she was having trouble with her list.
The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many."

The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

1. to touch
2. to taste
3. to see
4. to hear

She hesitated a little, and then

5. to feel
6. to laugh
7. and to love

Then the room was so full of silence it was deafening!

It is far too easy for us to look at the exploits of man and refer to them as "wonders" while we overlook all God has done for us, regarding
them as merely "ordinary". May you be reminded today of those things which are truly wondrous!
