Quick wonderful story of God's goodness even when life is hard.
Today I walked into a second grade classroom where I work, and one of the students who is often a behavior nightmare was behaving wonderfully. I sat down and began to talk to him. I told him that I heard that he used to attend a tutoring/discipling program that I local church puts on. He got so excited about it! He can no longer go because his mom doesn't have transportation, but he said he's been keeping up every week and plans on returning ASAP.
God is the one who's doing a work in this kid's life, and I can't wait to see him back in the program, soaking up the truth of the word and being surrounded by gracious love.
Some days I love my job.
