A SONday Story.....

A group of students were 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:

 Egypt’s Great Pyramids
Taj Mahal
 Grand Canyon
 Panama Canal
 Empire State Building
 St. Peter’s Basilica
 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:

7 Wonders of the world

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. 
A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be bought.

HOPE your SONday is awesomely blessed!

Breathing in Grace,
