Now in this complicated World we live in, we often over take
for granted simple things that are true blessings indeed!
However, when we stop and look at life through a child’s eyes,
we sometimes become more aware of these blessings. So
today we will do just that through a message that I just received
from one of our Brother’s In Christ, for out of the mouths of babes
sometimes comes great wisdom indeed!
After all; GOD performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.
( Job 5:9 *NIV )
The Seven Wonders Of The World!
A group of students was asked to list what they thought were
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 quiet
student hadn’t turned in her paper yet, so she asked the girl if
she was having trouble with her list.
The 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 See
2. to Taste
3. to Touch
4. to Hear
She hesitated a little, and then added,
5. to Feel
6. to Laugh
7. and to Love
The room was so full of silence you could have heard a pin
drop. Those things we overlook as simple and “ordinary” are
truly wondrous. This is a gentle reminder that the most
precious things in life cannot be bought. God gave them to us.
Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect, it just means
you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.
