2020
The year 2020 had been a challenging year in many aspects. Most of us want to forget about it. But truly the Lord was good to my family and I in 2020. Will He do the same for us and you in 2021? “My God shall supply all your (financial, material, physical, emotional and basic) needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:19  “Only God knows and controls what 2021 holds.”
Time Changer
I stumbled on this movie called “Time Changer” about a time machine and a Bible professor. I was so impressed with the acting, humor, professionalism, story, and message From a Christian aspect everything was Biblically correct and the plan of salvation was presented several times clearly, tactfully, and lovingly.
Marrying Mayor
Robb Green officiated his first wedding in September 1996. Then in September 2020, he had performed his 4,000th weddings. Doing the math that is 286 a year. On Valentine’s Day in 2001, he officiated at nine weddings. This Valentine’s Day, do the right thing and ask your most sufficient other to marry you. I know a Marrying Mayor that will officiate for you. “For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Happy Birthday Father
January 2021, my father Lester Stambaugh celebrated his 90th birthday. My father showed me a number of birthday cards thanking him for being a great person. One from his brother Dick, brought tears to my eyes. He basically wrote thanking my father for being a great Christian example. It was because my father that Dick accepted Jesus as his personal Savior. What kind of father, mother, brother, sister, friend, coworker, layperson and neighbor will people say that you are? Will Jesus say to you: “Well done my good and faithful servant?” I am proud to say that because of my Father’s greatness, I am what I am.
Pass the Baton
  My home state hosts the Penn Relays the oldest and largest track and field competition in the US hosted annually since April 21, 1895 by the University of Pennsylvania at Franklin Field. An example of passing the baton or transfer of power is the presidential transition. In 1877, the transition was worse. The Hayes-Tilden election had disputes over 20 electoral votes along with multiple allegations of electoral fraud. This constitutional crisis was resolved only two days before the scheduled inauguration through the Compromise of 1877.   After the Compromise, Democrats complained loudly that Tilden had been cheated. There was talk of forming armed units that would march on Washington. Sounds familiar? "Are you preparing and allowing someone to take your baton or will they be devastated by taking your mantle?"

But Some Things Never Change
I remember going to church when everyone worn suits and ties or dresses. I remember using payphones, typewriters, reading from textbooks, when tablets were not electronic and 2+2=4. But some things never change. At night, I look up and see the stars and the moon which have been there for thousands of years. You can change many things in your life but not your ultimate physical death. Have you considered what will happen to you - not if - but when you die? You can change your final destiny right now. Your world is forever changing but God’s love and peace for you never changes. May your love for Him never change.
Five Died on Good Friday
One of the five who died, I knew personally. His name was Rev. C. Jack Orr, Sr. Another, who died was killed: President Abraham Lincoln. On the first Good Friday, three men were crucified by being nailed to a cross. Those above who died on Good Friday and trusted Jesus as Lord and Savior are with Him in Heaven. This includes the one who acknowledged Christ while on the cross next to Him. The other thief did not and is in Hell wishing he did. “It is not too late for you to make a decision to accept Christ and make this a Good Friday.”
