Sunday Seven - 38th Edition

Happy Fourth Sunday of Advent!

Christmas is almost here. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful time of rejoicing. During this time of celebration and praise, take time now for:
-Reflecting on seven things you're grateful for or seven meaningful events from the past week;
-Anticipating (and allowing us to anticipate vicariously) upcoming events on your horizon;
-Celebrating steps of progress you've make toward a goal;
-Recognizing acts of kindness you have observed or performed;
-Requesting support for the week coming up -- let us know what you're concerned about;
-Inspiring and enlightening us-- if new understandings have come your way.
We invite you to link with each of us in sharing these joys, concerns, victories, or epiphanies.
Let's take our minds away, for a couple of days, from the task of just "making it through the day" and focus on inner growth, self-improvement, new understanding, and thankfulness.
As a community, we can each take strength from each other and offer encouragement to others as we get to know each other better.

The History Of SUNDAY SEVEN

The idea for "Sunday Seven" was started by my mother, Ruth (of Ruthlace). A few years ago she began encouraging my siblings and me to write a "Sunday Seven" email about whatever was going on in our lives. The seven of us are scattered across the country, and through this weekly (sometimes) email we are able to keep up with other a little better.

It was such a simple and enjoyable format that when I started blogging in September 2005, I occasionally put my Sunday Seven as a post on my blog. I felt that a time of reflection and gratitude was a good way to end one week and begin another.

Then in February 2007, I thought of making it a meme and having other bloggers join in the fun. The inspiration for formatting the Sunday Seven blog came from Leanne at Thursday Thirteen. I have been participating in Thursday Thirteen since December 2005. It is so much fun, and I've "met" so many other bloggers through it.

I participate in other similar memes - but Thursday Thirteen was the first. So the format of having a central blog, members visiting each other's blog and commenting, having unique headers, and bringing together a community of bloggers were all inspired by Leanne's work.

There are no guidelines at Sunday Seven other than to be nice to each other and have fun. If you want to be on the blogroll, just drop me an email with your blog information.

Week #1 - Sunday Seven, February 4, 2007

Here's the call for this weekend's SUNDAY SEVEN. Write seven things you are thankful for from the past week. You can also write about 7 things that happened to you the past week or seven things you're looking forward to the next week. Really, just seven comments about the week. Come back here and leave your name and URL in the comment section.

Let's see how quickly we can get this meme going. It will be a great way to end one week and begin another - with thankfulness and recognition.

The people who join during FEBRUARY will be CHARTER MEMBERS of the SUNDAY SEVEN meme!

You can go to blenza (dot) com where Mr. Linky will set you up with widgets for visitors and comments to your SUNDAY SEVEN.

SUNDAY SEVEN will officially open each weekend - usually on Saturday afternoon/evening.

Call for graphics

If you have a talent for creating graphics and would like to make some "Sunday Seven" graphics, have at it! Send your graphics to carol (at) themediansib (dot) com, and I'll post them here for other Sunday Seven'ers to use.

Sunday Seven - What's The Point?

Welcome to the SUNDAY SEVEN blog. This is where each week you will write seven things you're thankful for - or you can write about 7 things that happened to you the previous week or 7 things you're looking forward to next week.

The purpose is to help us remember to look for the good things in life - to help us remember to be thankful for what we have - even when the times are tough.

SEVEN is supposedly the number of perfection. What better way to end one week and start the next?
