FR Birthday Card: Greetings, Prayers for Terri Schindler-Schiavo
the hearts and minds of freepers | 11/30/03 | various freepers

Posted on 11/30/2003 4:09:05 AM PST by cyn

The intention of this thread is to gather the greetings, prayers, and well-wishes of all who share a concern and love for Terri Schindler-Schiavo. These can then be printed out to be given to Terri’s family. So many have posted here about Terri over the last several years! Please come back for a moment to ‘sign a card’ that will be given to Terri on her birthday Dec. 3 at the hospice in Pinellas Park. Leave a prayer or greeting if you’d like.

Thanks to all who have been concerned for Terri and have been motivated to act on her behalf regardless of their own limitations, sicknesses or problems. It has been awesome to know what some did or are doing while dealing with their own challenges. This is not limited to Free Republic -- at least one law firm a few years back closed to other business for a period of time to dedicate themselves to Terri’s situation, apparently pro-bono.

Looking into the dusty Free Republic archives reveals much about how you have affected others.

THANKS again to all, whether on FR or off, who have worked to help Terri. What an awesome labor of love and concern!

Thanks to God, Who has preserved Terri's life to this point. May the concern people share over Terri's situation draw all of us, and so many more, to a closer relationship to Him as their loving Father.

May many more people see this beautiful image and know Terri as she really is -- NOT in a coma, NOT PVS.
She's awake, she laughs, she responds, she swallows. Let her family care for her, period. "Home for the holidays" -- why not?

Happy birthday, Terri! Our thoughts and prayers remain with you and with your family.

May angels seen and unseen continue to guard, protect, and strengthen you. We praise God for keeping you safe in the midst of this turmoil.

May those who are working for Terri have knowledge, wisdom, insight, discernment, courage, strength, ability, and peace beyond what they can imagine as they put God first in all things; may their needs (physical, spiritual, other) be met for Terri's fight.

Thanks! This thread can be dedicated to our greetings, printed out, given to her family as was done during the vigil. These names can be added to the FR card. Hope many see this who've not been posting recently.

FV request:

Please do a post if you'd like to submit your screen name to Free Republic's birthday card for Terri Schindler-Schiavo. Her party's this coming Wednesday. Free Republic's having a table at the bash with a giant FR card on it.

If you have ping lists, please ping them. Thanks. FV

Happy Birthday Terri. God has his loving arms wrapped around you. There are many of us saying rosaries and novenas so that your lovely family will be able to care for you again, very soon. May God continue to bless everyone involved in keeping you safe.

Dear Terri,

Your story jumped out at me from the headlines. How could this be happening? I wanted to know. Understanding what has happened to you in Florida became a part of a much larger search to understand how this could be happening today, in an supposedly enlightened society. How far have we come from the Holocaust? Where will this lead us, if it continues?

Aside from the philosophical questions, the need for action is immediate and ongoing. Throughout your latest, and hopefully last, ordeal without food and water, I reflected on the power of so many people, many knowing each other only through the internet, all praying for divine intervention.

By a miracle which I do not yet fully understand, and never will, things were happening quickly behind the scenes as sand slipped through the hourglass marking your court-enforced punishment for a crime that doesn't exist - the "crime" of being disabled and needing care.

My heart broke with the weight of the suffering inflicted on your family and friends throughout their long battle to keep you alive, Terri. I wept for you, I prayed for you, and I rejoiced when Governor Jeb Bush, a true humanitarian, signed the Executive Order restoring the most basic of all life's necessities - your food and water.

Though your journey is far from over, and the future holds more legal battles, today is your birthday, a time to celebrate the gift of life and the blessings of love, friends, and family.

Happy Birthday!

Your family loves you so much as well Terri!

Sheila Davis and family

Dear Terri:

God grant that you may be the Guest of Honor at our next Free Republic "March for Justice." Sit up in your chair, warm yourself in the sun, feel a kitten at your cheek, and hear one thousand Freepers welcome you with cheers and big hot tears.

That was approximately 70,000 posts as of November 18, 2003. It is a calling and a freep in one.

msmagoo, Have you picked up any new names here for the FR Card? Let me know if there's a FR table because I have a lavender tablecloth.

If anyone's sending cards or stuffed animals to the Foundation, PURPLE IS TERRI'S FAVORITE COLOR. Visit

God bless you, Terri, and may St. Michael Archangel and your Guardian Angel continue heartened in their vigil. May St. Therese pray for you.

There will be a FR table, not sure who is going to be there, but the lavender tablecloth will be appreciated. Will pass the offer along to the lady organizing the party.

The latest card update is here and 8mmMauser is to be added to the next updated list.

T'wit and Lovergirl, if you would like your name to be added to the Freepers who cannot attend the party, we will be giving balloons out to symbolize Terri's many supporters. Add a "ballon bump" here and please ping anyone missing from the list who might want to be included.

Dear Terri, I can't come to your party but I will be sharing the celebration with you from W.Va. because the 3rd is my birthday too. I have prayed for you many times and I see the Lord's hand in saving your life. I will continue to pray that you will soon be with your family and can receive the therapy you need. I see you whole and blessed by God. Thank you Lord.

Dear Terri,

I heard about you on the Glen Beck show, when he was on WABC, Sunday nights. Glen mentioned the website, I went there, and you and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers ever since.

I wish you the happiest 40th birthday! I pray that you'll receive the best birthday gift ever - that of being restored permanently to the care of your parents, brother, and sister.

God bless you Terri, with a beautiful, peaceful day, and may He keep you safe always.
