Happy Thanksgiving!

I know we have a global audience, and that not all of you will be celebrating Thanksgiving today like we do here in the United States, but all the same, it’s an opportunity for me to express my gratitude to you. For your readership, for your prayers, and for your support of our work here at 1P5. We really do appreciate you all so much.

To be honest, today snuck up on me. Things have been so busy, and the next thing I knew, we were here. It’s the nature of our work at 1P5 to cover a lot of heavy stories, and we don’t have a lot of opportunities to lighten up and just have a laugh. I’m actually late, right now, to go start cooking the Turkey (we’re going to do it on our smoker this year. So good!) so I can’t stay long, but I wanted to share something with you before I go – a moment of levity I hope you’ll enjoy.

So as the media guy in our family, last night I wound up working on a Thanksgiving video for my wife Jamie to send to her clients (Jamie has worked in real estate for many years). It was supposed to be a poignant video, with sentimental music and a nice voiceover with a Thanksgiving message. The problem was, I couldn’t get it right. I was tired from working all day, it was late, and I was being called for dinner. My script wasn’t working. The timing was off and the words weren’t hitting the visuals. So in a moment of amused apathy, I just decided to narrate whatever came to mind as the video played on screen.

It wound up being pretty ridiculous, but we all had a good laugh about it. I was going to make a video for all of our readers, too, but I just ran out of time. So instead, I hope you’ll watch the silly video below and enjoy it too. There’ll be time enough again for serious news tomorrow.

God bless you and yours, and happy Thanksgiving!

In Christ,

  1. Thank you, Steve, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, and the marvelous staff of OnePeterFive.

    The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
    The LORD make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
    The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. – Numbers 6:24-26

  2. My wife and I just cried laughing. “Random lady in a pirate shirt”…haha!

    Thanks for your hard work, Steve. God bless you and your family. You do not know how much of a light you are in this world.

  3. Satan:
    “Ah Francis, the chair you sit upon so lightly, so much confusion and anger within your ranks
    a mobile chair with impressive horizontal movements, no?”

    Pope Francis:
    “Perhaps, but God has surprised me and tasked me with uprooting rigidly “locked and loaded” tired positions that elevate vertically leaving many without sufficient “room” to maneuver thru life’s complexities.”

    “Why yes of course! You are so wise to discern and propagate a fresh approach to revitalize your Ship of charge amid the changing dynamic of Culture. A worthy adversary you are and surely will succeed in “feeding” both Sheep and Goat.”

    Pope Francis:

    “Oh, never mind….”

    Fr. James Martin:
    “Hi Sailors, what’s up guy’s?”

    Pope Francis:
    “Hello Fr. Martin.”

    “Time for EVEN I to take my leave…..”

    Fr. James Martin:
    “Was it something I said Your Holiness?”

    Pope Francis:
    “To whom are you addressing Fr. James?”

  4. Our “thanksgiving” (small “t”) occurs on December 25. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (big “T”), which is the Puritan anti-Christmas and essentially a commemoration of their anti-Catholic conquest of America.

    No thanks.
