Yours since 2016

Thank-You Words Including Food
"In ordinary life we hardly realize
that we receive a great deal more than we give,
and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Hypothesis: Gramercy is the apogee and destination as well as the path. This is what God wants us to be because it invites Him in on the love and joy experience, glowing our existence and shining in the sunlight; ready to dance at a moment's notice sore back notwithstanding.
Positivity widens the scope to BIG PICTURE 'Oneness'.
