What a great (and long) day! Probably my favorite part was the scrupulosity support group I attended this evening. I literally wept tears of relief when I heard what the group leader had to say about my issues concerning spiritual perfection and the whole "mental illness vs. spiritual failing" controversy plaguing many Christians with OCD. You can be sure I will write more about this very soon.
We topped the day off by stopping at Rick Bayless' restaurant, Xoco, to pick up one of the most indulgent cups of hot chocolate I have ever had. Xoco has the coco beans delivered straight to the restaurant, where they grind them on premises. Wow. Even though it's hot and humid here, I just couldn't resist. Yum!
Why "71º & Sunny?"
I consider 71º to be the perfect temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. I also love perfect sunny days. The vast majority of days are not 71º & Sunny and yet, all days were created by God's hand and they are still gifts, even if they don't fit my ridiculous definition of perfection. My struggle with OCD has at times imprisoned me in an impossible attempt to achieve perfection. I'm now learning to love all kinds of days that don't even come close to 71º & Sunny.
Please leave me a comment below. I really want to know what you are thinking!
