Second page Glue Book

I love making these pages! The background comes from a book I found in a little French village near us - it was in a container free of charge, so I took a couple.

I am happy to say that yesterday I took one of my biggest hurdles yet and am relieved it is behind me. I had a Scan which made it possible to calculate where the radio therapy should be applied. It is usually three places around the affected breast which is marked with a very small tatoo which looks like a pin prick. The rays will be aimed at those places, lasting one minute or so each time, everday for six weeks, excluding weekends.

The verse that God has spoken to me for 11 years now is:

Do not fear; for I am with you
Be not dismayed; for I am your God.
I will make you strong,
Yes I will help you,
Yes I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.

I had to lay still (was not allowed to move at all) for 30-40 minutes with my arm above my head and my head had to be at an angle... I was then moved into a machine for the scan. I had my eyes closed and was praying all the time so I didn't know what was happening! But when they came in after a very long time to relieve me, my arm was completely numb, I could not feel it! I was so relieved to have done that!
I don't know about you, but how many times do you hear yourself say 'I can't do that' in the many circumstances of life?

With God we can do much more that we ever think possible, so say to yourself in your situation
'I can do all things through Him who strengthens me' Phil. 4:13
and have a good day!

  3. You're so faithful, Jacqueline. I don't know when was the last time I said to myself: "I can't do that." I almost never do that, because just like He says, that He will be with me in everything I do.
    It's such another beautiful page..

  4. You are an inspiration in every way ... I love your page and I love to read your bible verses ... Thank you for sharing ... sending very best wishes

  5. Jacqueline eindelijk heb ik gevonden hoe ik je kan schrijven.Ik heb gisteren veel gebeden voor je en meer vriendinnen van je ! je hebt het doorstaan dat lange onderzoek".God zij met je" Veel liefs van je mij.

  6. Gorgeous page, Jacqueline! You really are stronger than you think and I'm so glad you are one step closer to a complete recovery! Sending big hugs to you today!

  7. What a beautiful page. May the Lord continue to keep you strong . You are an inspiration to us all.
    Blessings to you.

  8. Again I admire your strength Jacqueline, it's wonderful to know that you gain so much strength from your faith. I'm so glad you passed this ordeal, too... Love the second page and boy, don't you just love these containers where you can find these wonderful goodies :-) Blessings, Ira

  9. Continuing to pray for you and your complete recovery! You are a very definite inspiration to many people. Blessings!

  10. Another gorgeous page - I love your marvelous stamping, the colors are so wonderful! Happy to hear you got through your tough day - I'm sure it will get easier as you continue to get into the routine of the treatment... perhaps it can be your special prayer time every day, a time to "retreat" a bit, concentrate on your thoughts instead of on the therapy. Easy for me to say, much harder for you to do, I'm sure!!! But you have a very special gift in your faith, it will always help you through.

  11. Another lovely page from a very brave lady

    God bless you Jacqueline


  12. I'm going to print that prayer and keep it close to my heart. My thoughts and prayers are still with you Jacqueline. I love the gluepages you are doing and have been inspired to try it myself. Sending you a hug.

  13. What a blessing to know God's comfort and strength are always there for us. I'm so glad that He got you through the scan. May He give you endurance for the days and weeks ahead and continue to use your beautiful testimony of faith. Your lovely spirit is evident in your words and your art, thanks for sharing both.

  14. That is a beautiful page Jacqueline, I see the Hydrangea peeking out there! So glad you've had that first part of the therapy done! I have you in my prayers!

  16. Oh Jacqueline I haven't been over for quite a while and I'm sad to hear you still have to undergo so much. I know God is standing by you every step of the way and ready to catch you if you fall.

  19. Beste Jacqueline,

    Wat leuk en bijzonder dat ik via je blog kan volgen wat er allemaal gebeurd in jouw leven/jullie gezin. Speciaal in deze moeilijke tijden is het mooi om te zien dat je zo opbouwend kan zijn in je schrijven. In de woestijnen van het leven leer je toch vaak het meest en ben je het meest afhankelijk van God. Eng, wat je moeten dingen uit handen geven, maar bijzonder omdat je dichter naar God nadert. In dit alles wens ik jou en je gezin veel sterkte toe de komende tijd en zullen we (met ons gezin na het eten) voor jou/jullie bidden....

    Groetjes vanuit een koud nederland
