The pool is the place where I work. I come down early in the morning, to get it ready to open. In the mornings when I'm cleaning it, it's a quiet, calm place to simply welcome the day.
Many times though, it tests my attitude--waking up early to go get wet and slightly dirty is not too appealing. However, the pool in the morning is a time where I just simply get to appreciate God's hand. The beauty of the water and wildlife and the glorious mornings are a reminder of his presence daily.
"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech and night to night reveals knowledge." Psalm 19:1-2
