First up we are going to watch the BBC production which I ordered from Netflix.

Oath of Citizenship:
"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
This is a great thing to memorize. The vocabulary alone is worth the effort and the sentence structure is evocative of a more beautiful time.

Things get tricky from here until January. The week before Thanksgiving is a hard week for me to stay on track. I consistently end up skipping MT during this week. The thing that keeps me going is knowing that we are going to be singing some of my favorite Thanksgiving hymns. I love Thanksgiving and this year it is going to be special with both grand-babies visiting.
Just think in two weeks our tree will be up and we will be reveling in the advent of Christ with Handel's Messiah.
