    Congratulations on one year. I love reading your posts that come to me. Thank you for the song …. no worries about any misspellings or anything ….. we all are perfect to us, and who is it really to say that the “god” should be capitalized or not. We all are GOD. We are him and he is us. Capitalized or not.
    Have a great celebration.

    Always, Carol
