It seems a group of geography students were studying the "Seven Wonders of the World." At the end of their course, they were asked to list what they each considered to be the "Seven Wonders of the Modern World." After much debate, these were the most voted for answers:
the teacher was going over the results, he noticed that
one girl had not turned in her paper. He asked if she
was having trouble with her list.
she responded, "Yes. I can't make up my mind because there seem to be so many."
The teacher said, "Let me help. Read what you've got so far."
The girl hesitantly started to read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
To Touch, To Taste, To See, To Hear,
To Run, To Laugh and To Love.
The room was so quiet, you could hear a pin drop.
The things we overlook as simple and ordinary. and that we take for granted are truly wonderous.
Do we take more notice of the "wonders" man has built and tend to forget about the real wonders that God has given us?
Yes, sometimes I think we do.
We need to take the time to thank Him for the pleasure in His wonderful creations.
For the delight of hearing laughter and music,
For the delight of knowing and touching others around us.
For inspiring us to reach toward new knowledge, and heightened awareness.
And for blending all of these experiences into the excitement we call life.
