TITLE: Did you RECEIVE your postcard?

This one is from Florida, the others are from Mexico. Ooh, look a postcard from Wales! Beauty to the eyes brings much excitement to my mind. It is amazing what a postcard can do. Do you remember the card from grandmother when she was in California? What about Aunt Susie when she reached Alaska? Have you ever felt like you where actually there, by looking at the pictures?

A particular postcard struck me a little strange. Not a clue of where it came from, nor did the writer leave a name. It stated, "Dear you, I hope you get this in time." My mom and kids are hanging very close to power lines. I know you will not ignore this, for this is way too big. Watching the news does not do this any justice. Please help them, for I am much to weak. See, I have been praying and the Lord led me to thee. The writer signed the postcard as, "I AM."

I thought to myself.....ah how strange. This postcard reached me, the writer doesn't know my name. My mind drifted then, thoughts rammed through my head. My head began to ache, heart started to flutter. "Lord, Lord, that poor man mother", I said. This seems like something I've read. In Job 33:16 it states,"he may speak in their ears
and terrify them with warnings." Surely that couldn't be exactly what it said.

Suddenly, I realized that I was asleep. Woo! What a relief. I knew it was a joke, way too much grief. I will carry on with my suits and briefcase, I will even have coffee to start off my day. Off I am, to my very important job. See, I am a lawyer, many people depend on me. I work for them, they work for me. You know the American dream, get money.

Catastrophe to my surprise when I opened my front door. De ja vu, this sort of looks like my dream. What a nightmare, I will just close my door. I wonder if others have received a postcard like this before.

Interesting article. A bit confusing, it's hard to tell what's going on until the end, and even then it's blurry. Thanks for sharing.

This one confuses me. Maybe add a bit of narrative to the man's inner dialog, to explain what is going on.

I too am confused. Need to see something more.
