I was going through some boxes yesterday
looking for some postcards
I had gotten when I was much younger.
I wanted them for this corner view topic.
I didn't find them (yet).
But I discovered something I didn't know I had:
a postcard from my father
to his parents
when he was a POW in Germany
I have taken photos of both sides
with close-ups of parts.
Bad Orb was the name of the camp
where my dad was imprisoned for 4 months.
Notice he says never give up twice:
once at the top--"Never give up hope."
and on the last line -"Never give up."
I tear up at "I pray every night & have faith
that God will bring me home to you all again."
As regular readers of my blog know from previous posts,
God did bring Dad home,
and Dad honored that with becoming a Methodist minister.
By the time Dad was captured the Germans were struggling
with feeding and clothing themselves.
Red Cross was no longer getting through to the camps.
Packages were sent, but they never made it.
But Dad survived.
