Special Request

By dawnmichelle    
I have a specail request I hope you can help me with. A friend of ours Freddie Lee Moore is going to be undergoing yet another Brain Surgery. He was born with fluid on the brain and has had shunts that run from the brain into his stomach. As you can image over the years he has underwent several surgries has he has grown or due to the fact that the shunts close off. Now the shunts are closing off again so he will be having another surgery soon. This has also caused limited sight so he has this to deal with as well..
What I got to thinking last night is how could I show him that people are thinking of him and praying for him..
So here's what I came up with and I hope you will join me.. I would like to see how many emails or PM's or even a message in the comment area for this image. I will print them all off and get them to him. All I was thinking was a comment Somehting like "Freddie we are thinking /praying for you. and who you are and where your from.."
Freddie is one in a million and you all would love him .. When he smiles he smiles from the heart. You are changed just by knowing him.
The email address is

I will print each one off and get it to him.
Thank you in advance to all that will be willing to help me bring a smile to Freddie and most of all let him know we are thinking of him.

A beautiful series, I particularly like V5 & V6 - reminds me, I haven't played with plastic-wrapped for a while and it's fun!
Our thoughts are with Freddie. A friend's little son has the same condition and already at less than a year old has the tube drawing fluid off. It's a frightening condition but on the plus side the treatment transorms lives.

Freddie, The Lord our God is very near as your prayer and our prayers. He is our Healer. What impossible to men are all possible to God. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Ask, and it shall be given unto you, knock, and the will open. Just seek first His kingdom and righteousness and ALL THINGS shall be given unto you.

God loves you, and we love you as friend, relatives, and fellow human being. Be strong and courageous.

Let the healing hand of God touch you my beloved friend.

No. 3 would look good on my flat's brick wall (might deter graffiti too).
All the best to you, your family and Freddie.
