Define Good

 

Oh! You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

Some pixie elves find a letter to Santa.
 "Listen to this", says Red Elf 3119. " 'Dear Santa,
We have been very good kitties. Any rumours to the contrary are vicious lies.

Signed,

Shadow, Shredder, Izzy & Harriet

P.S. Please remember the Raggedy Tiger and Tuxedo Cat who live in the garden' "

Green Elf 6578309 looks skeptical. He is remembering an incident involving a pot of geraniums which were brought into the house to winter over.


He's making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
  "I found it this way, I swear!," protests Shredder. "It was Izzy and Harriet did it!"

 "Hmmm," thinks Harriet, "I prefer not to comment. If I am very still I'll blend right in with this pillow."


 He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!
"We'd better consult with the big man."
 A message is sent North... 
 An investigation is begun...

 "Drats!" Izzy grumbles. "I don't suppose we can get Grandpa Shadow to take the rap? Everyone be extra cute from now until Christmas. And for heaven's sake Harriet, stay outta the tree!"


O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town



Do you remember the worry and excitement ? 
 Do you remember worrying over  little infractions and misbehavior? The struggle to be just a little nicer than comes natural? 

Christmas is coming
Someone wonderful is coming and we are pressed to self examination, to strive to be better.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:4-7


Have a Blessed Week!
