People keep waiting for God, or for Jesus to return. The big day always coming, the day for which we must always be prepared. But I think God–or joy, or peace, or happiness, or fulfillment–comes every single day, every single hour. I find it in kindness; I find it when I huddle with students and witness them growing–in talent, in kindness. We are the judgment day, the coming, the reward.
