ILL. I like the story about the 3rd-graders who were asked to write down the 7 wonders of the world. So they took blank pieces of paper, & started writing down what they thought were the 7 wonders of the world.


After a while, the teacher collected the papers & began looking at their answers, things like the Grand Canyon, the pyramids in Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, wonders from all over the world.


But one little girl was still busily writing. The teacher asked her, "Aren’t you through? I just asked you to write down the 7 wonders of the world. What are you writing?"


The little girl answered, "Well, I don’t know if these are the right ones or not, but I have a whole lot more than 7."


The teacher said, "Hand me your paper & let me see what you have written." Then he started reading the little girl’s list of the 7 wonders of the world. "To be able to see, hear, think, breathe, touch, run, love, laugh." And the list went on.


SUM. You see, our problem is that we think that the great things of life are the magnificent material things, things like fattened calves. And we miss the blessings that our Father is giving to us every day.
