7 [Seven]

The number 7 has always intrigued me.  [Seven] is best know as ‘Lucky 7’ but has also been referred to as the ‘number of perfection’.  For the faithful, [Seven] is the mystical number representing miracles.  Jesus insists that we need to forgive 70×7;  instructing us to forgive as many times as needed in order for forgiveness to take place.  In his Gospel John speaks of 7 witnesses, seven miracles, and seven “I am’s” .  Impressed by John’s writings I thought I would pass these ‘7’s on to you.  Enjoy!
