I have put off blogging about a recent development with my health. I was having so much fun sharing my faith with art around the world. However, because I have friends who might want to know, my cancer has returned in full force. I have begun another round of chemotherapy, and will probably be fighting my stage 4 breast cancer with chemo for quite a few months. Even so, I hope to make art as I can, and share with you a few projects I completed right before my treatment began. Two of my daughters cared for me during my first chemo, pictured below. What encouragement they have been! They have shown up and shown up, over and over again. (*See below for info on a very special book on showing up.)
I’ll give you a sneak peak at my latest collaged art book………..
Making this book has encouraged my own heart to stand firm in my faith, and my rock, Jesus, as I try to grasp a few more years with my loved ones by doing more chemo. Stay tuned as I share more, and another book I recently completed.
And thanks for any prayer during these months of fighting and creating.
*Be sure to check out the book, Just Show Up: The Dance Of Walking Through Suffering by fellow cancer fighter, Kara Tippetts and her showing up friend, Jill Lynn Buteyn. JUST SHOW UP 🙂
This is beautiful. I love the photo of your daughters showing up. And your artwork is spectacular! What a gift you have. Thank you for using it for HIS glory! Praying your treatments go well.
Thanks so, so much, Jill. I treasure your prayers!
