Painting with Cara

I've been watching Cara watercolor today. I love how kids paint what the want to paint and do not worry about how people view it. I think I struggle with painting because I want it to look "pleasing" to others. I'm going to try to start being creative without trying to please. Creativity can get stifled when we try to make it popular.
Also, yesterday was my mother's 84th birthday! Yay!

Learning Something New

Today, I have a new form of art to create! My sweet sister sent some modge podge, watercolors and paper to me. She has been creating collages and she thought I would like it. I love it! I'll post pictures soon.
 Learning new things always adds a fresh perspective to life. Creating new things is fun and makes me so happy!
 Try doing something new and see if it adds happiness!

A Moment of Peace

Try to remember to walk in peace.
No matter what you are going through,
the peace of God is there.
Be still and find it,
if even for a moment,
and it will help.

 The road we walk is filled with choices
 We can choose to walk in the sun or
 choose to walk in the dark
 We can choose to react with love
 or choose to react with negativity

Funny picture to share. Emma and our dog, Macy.

Snow and Grace

 Freezing outside with a light dusting of snow
causing one to wish for a blanket of

 snow to
make things seem cleaner somehow
our snow dances freely today,
just like we can dance
because of grace we don't need a blanket

I've Been Away

 I am going to introduce myself again. I haven't been blogging in a while.
 I'm Christy Schrage. I am a married mom of 3. I love Jesus! I love to write, paint and help others. I feel we should give of ourselves to people in need, I will try to do this with my writing. It is my goal to remain real and transparent with others without running my mouth constantly.
About my sweet family...
I am married to Kyle. He is a great husband and father. We have had our ups and downs in marriage but right now, through much healing, we are in a really good place.
 Ellie is my oldest child, she is 16. She is beautiful inside and out. She loves to sing and play softball.
 Emma is our middle child, she is 12. She is a sweetheart and loves her soccer.
 Cara is our youngest, she is 10. She is joy. She loves everything.
 I am blessed. I am honored to write for friends. Thanks for reading.
