“Seven Wonders of the World”
(Author Unknown)

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 considered to be the 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 added:
5. "to run,
6. to laugh,
7. and to love."

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, regarding them as merely "ordinary."

May you be reminded today of those things which are truly wondrous.

The Prayer
Dear God,        
        And You Dear Father are the Most Wondrous Wonder of ALL! Though others may perceive You as far away, I have experienced, and DO experience You Here, Now and Always. Thank You for All that You Are and all that You Do.

You ALL are Within the Infinitely Loving Embrace of our Universal Parent,

The Creator's Eternal Love to all of You,
Pastor Daniel
