The REAL Seven Wonders of the World

It’s Worth Revisiting Wednesday!

If I were to ask you to name The Seven Wonders of the World, you would probably scramble mentally to remember the impressive list. Historically speaking, it has been a list of seven sites known to the Ancient Greeks as the most awe-inspiring locales in their known world.

The Great Pyramid of Giza, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Lighthouse of Alexandria, The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.

Of course, there is a list of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World:  The Channel Tunnel, CN Tower, Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge, Itaipu Dam, Netherlands North Sea Protection Works. The Panama Canal.


However, the primary wonder of our  earth is it rests in the heart of the Almighty Father. Have you seen how insignificant our entire galaxy is in comparison to the rest of the universe? It is mind-boggling. Yet the universe is, metaphorically speaking, in the palm of God’s hand. This is incomprehensible to us,  just like the concepts that He is Omnipotent. Omnipresent. Omniscient. He is all-powerful, all-present, and all-knowing.These words express the upper limit of our ability to understand power, wisdom, and time.

Back to the extraordinary wonders of our tiny planet as I  present The REAL Seven Wonders of the World in photographic images:

  1. Hi Melanie: Once again – great article and fantastic use of photography! I would add an 8th wonder: To learn! It is the culmination of all seven wonders that you mention. Using all five senses, in conjunction with loving and laughing, God’s world and all that it offers, is revealed to me. With that revelation, I learn more about my “all-powerful, all-present, and all-knowing” God.
