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!

Redemption. Rescue. It's what Easter is all about.

As I slowly recover from OCD, I'm getting a little taste every day of what it is like to be rescued from the pit. And let me tell you, it's pretty awesome!

Jesus willingly came to Earth, lived a human life (with all of its pain and suffering), and then died on the cross in our place. That is unbelievably wonderful. Sacrificial love at its highest. But without the next part, it would make no difference to us. Three days later, He rose from the dead and conquered the grave for us all, and opened the doors to Heaven. THAT, my sweet friends, is what changed the course of history.

I'm wishing you the deep peace and joy that can only come from our Lord. May you feel the indescribable love of our Savior, Jesus, today and every day.

"because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 ESV
