Wonder-filled Wonder

As a kid, I remember studying the seven wonders (man-made) of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Temple of Artemis, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.The newer seven wonders of the world are: The Great Wall of China; The Taj Mahal, India; Petra, Jordan; The Colosseum in Rome, Italy; Christ the Redeemer statue, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Chichen Itza, Mexico; and Machu Picchu, Peru. (Source: history.com) Both lists created controversy, and still do, as to which edifice made the list.The seven wonders got me thinking: Could there be seven wonders worthy of admiration in every life? In yours? I think so. How about making a list? Go ahead; be surprised. (Should you need help, ask someone who knows you.) For example, my body (yours as well) is a wonder. I am fascinated with new discoveries science continues to make about the human body.But the greatest wonder in my life is, in the words of George Beverly Shea,              O the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all,            Just to think that God loves me!            O the wonder of it all, the wonder of it all,            Just to think that God loves me!Maybe Shea got his song idea from those immortal words of the Lord Jesus Christ: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but, have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)The story of Jesus Christ is the greatest wonder in the universe. This Christmas and always, celebrate this wonder; it’s yours as well😊
