What Does The Number 7 Mean To Me?

The  number following 6
can be seen in the view of religion
such as the seven deadly sins

Or think worldwide and list
the seven continents.
North America, South America,
Asia, Australia, Europe
and Antarctica

or take it simple and count the days 
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

as I count how many days in a week
as I write and speak I think
of Isaac Newton and the 7 colors
of the rainbow.
Red orange yellow
blue green indigo
and last but not least violet

But I guess you prefer to talk religion
so sit back listen and pay attention.
God rested on the seventh day.
Vengeance will be 7 times over
for the death of Cain
Seven days of the feast of Passover

Seven pairs of every clean animals
into the ark when God instructed Noah

Mary Magdalene was possessed by seven demons.
Seven spirits of God, Seven Churches
in the book of Revelation.

Seven men in the old testament
starting with Moses, David, Samuel
Shenaiah, Elijah, Elisha, and Igdaliah.
7 * 7 =  age of virgin Mary when Jesus was born.

7 is a prime, 7 is odd.
When I think of 7
I think of God.

  1. Wow I love this! 7 is my favourite number and always has been but I’ve never had a reason for it until now. β€œ7 is a prime, 7 is odd. When I think of 7, I think of God”. Thank you πŸ’œ
