Too True in Too Many Cases

Charles Shultz and his "Peanuts" gang have so much to teach us.

This cartoon may cause you to chuckle, but after over three decades of speaking at teen camps for five to seven weeks each portrays truth for so many young people.

On the one hand, it is hard to deal with "home sick" kids in childrens' camps (I have staffed these, and spoken (once - half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb at!)...but we can and should be thankful that some of the kids miss home...when so many live in warzones that they'd rather not go home to...

But there are also teenagers who at least feel they have no friends...for a wide variety of reasons.

Though that is painful to observe, what a joy it is to be able to tell them about the Friend who will stick closer to a brother, and to love on them and stay connected with them and let them know that they do have a heavenly Father and that they do have at least one human friend with whom they can stay connected...
