Now begins the festive seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas. As usual during the hectic run up to the holidays, some things are lost or overlooked. For the Munsons’ this week it was the NCIS show and our usual critique. The Thanksgiving service at our church was moved to Tuesday night, followed by the lighting of a beautiful Christmas tree. Not to worry, we set the DVR to record the NCIS episode of “Grounded”. When we arrived home, half way through the episode we discovered our DVR left us grounded, as it hadn’t recorded.

So we’ll tell you that we saw a bit of Bishop’s husband watching with pride how professional his wife was in her new role. We would like to have seen Tony’s dad, as he always brings some fun and confusion, but his flight didn’t arrive. Those of you who saw the entire episode will have to share your informed opinion. We did observe Tony being back at the top of his game. He stopped the would-be assassin in the end. Abby offered the team a chance to make snow angels in the snow. How many of you recall doing so as youngsters? FYI, the next new episode for NCIS is 12/16/14.

In honor of Thanksgiving, we’d like to share a few lines from President George Washington when he signed the Thanksgiving Proclamation: “(M)ay we unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions … to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed … and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.”

Thank God from whom ALL blessings flow. May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Be Blessed, Diane and David Munson
