Today when I was swimming I did some thinking.  Paul the Apostle was asked "Why are some people born physically or mentally challenged?" His reply was so that those special one's among us can show God love for us and their achievement, and what they do, and who they are, more than people without those challenges but you see God work in their lives. So you should see God work in your life. This is what I see in my envolvement with aquatics. People come to the pool. In particular the pool I work at for therapy, rehab, excersise, a break from how hard life is and I watch as they make friends and get to know each other and many respects find healing. I have seen bodies strenghtened, faces smile, pain leave, and so much more. I have seen all of this in people who don't think there challenged as much as people who society recognizes are special bring God with me and see God around me when I work in aquatics and this makes for an exceptional time and place to be because of the people allowing God to work through them in this aquatics setting.
