In our first reading this weekend, we hear about the Israelites in the desert grumbling against Moses and Aaron. They failed to see the goodness of God and all that God has done for them. You may have run into people who seem be always grumbling about something. Surely, it would not be the person who looks back at you in the mirror. :-) 

The truth is: God created a good world and life is good. :-) 

One way a person can make life enjoyable and realize this truth is to believe that he or she is created by God and he or she has a purpose in this world All that God created is good :-) 

May we realize a little more this week that we have a purpose and ask God to make it clear to us what that purpose is for us. God is So Good!! :-)

God shares that Goodness with us. :-)
