Drawing Diary: 26 and 27 January 2012

26 January: Did we loose the fathers?
I can get so upset when I think of children that grow up without a father.
Mothers that are doing a double shift raising their kids.
I get upset thinking about the men that leave, or that are absent. 
Can we men do our job to take responsibility and be faithful. I hope and pray I will.

27 January: Jan Willem reads the newspaper.
The Psychological survey of the youth in Hamar is still in the newspapers, and I am following it.
I want to know how the kids are doing that come by our café.
It is sad to hear the authorities say they can drop their youth-work because most kids are at home playing video-games.
And I read an article about the "Peter-Pan syndrome" in Vårt Land. The movie Finding Neverland is about the same thing, and tells the story of J.M.Barrie. I recognize myself in this and don´t want to be a man like this.
The difficult thing for me is that this drawing-diary is next to «Neverland» for me, I spend at least one or two hours every day on the diary. Life needs to be spent with real people, rather than written in a book, and put on display.
God did not just drop a book from the heavens, but sent His only son Jesus, and He lived his life here on earth. The book is about Jesus.

Hey mr. Lonley,

I had a quick look at your site. And, man you write a lot.
All those little things going on in your life, how long does it take you every day to do your online diary?
I pick only one thing I want to write about, but doing the drawing can take more than one hour every time.
