Seven Wonders of the World

Junior high school students in Chicago were studying the Seven Wonders of the world. At the end of the lesson, the students were asked to list what they considered to be the Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was some disagreement, the following received the most votes.
  1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
  2. The Taj Mahal in India
  3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
  4. The Panama Canal
  5. The 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 feel…
  6. to laugh…
  7. and to love…
The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop. May this story be a reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful, and we don’t have to travel anywhere special to experience them.

What a simple way to express God, knowing man is the greatest of all the wonders of the world.
