It’s no ordinary pool.
Not for about 3 months now.
It’s been a sanctuary made of a concrete apron and some fencing and, of course, the pool.
Each and every night, encased in the darkness we spoke.
Exchanging sorrows, apologies, and words – some bitter, some encouraging, some just packed with truth.
It’s like the darkness protected us … But in all actuality – we were in the biggest wide-open space there was by the pool – under the stars.
And we were never alone.
Ordinary? To the many people passing by it’s just a pool.
But to us, it became a sanctuary for hope and healing.
Under a covering of constellations…
And under the covering of a gracious, merciful, loving and forgiving God.
It’s just not ordinary anymore…
