How often we forget to count our blessings.


A group of students were asked to list what they thought were the present "Seven Wonders of the World." Though there were some disagreements, the following selections received 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 having gathered the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished, her paper still out. So she asked the student 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 for a moment, then said, "Okay, here they are. I think the 'Seven Wonders of the World are . . . "

1. to see,
2. to hear,
3. to touch,
4. to taste,
5. to feel,
6. to laugh,
7. and to love."

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.



The things we overlook as simple and ordinary and that we take for granted can be viewed by others as wonders of the world! The most precious things in life are not built by hand.
