Autumn Elegance

Artist Kelly J
Paint by Numbers with some creative flair added

This beautiful piece captured my interest because I love the colors and the simplicity of this piece. It is actually a paint by numbers but once I was done, I made it my own, and added to it and filled in and blended everything together. Immediately after I posted it, the original sold. I use all my profits to help others in need. This profit went to a man I got to know in South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation who helps the elders there. So the monies I made on this piece helped some people have wood for heat, water and supplies needed during there cold winter season.

Thank you goes to Norm C. for purchasing this piece and Tony T. for helping others in their time of need.

Once you believe the signs are everywhere


Art by Kelly J

God knows what works for you and it's the results that matter. If something makes you think it's a sign from Him, He's happy that you're thinking of Him.”

A young boy and his dog


Art by Kelly J - December 2020

We share the Earth with millions of different creatures. Before the fall of man-kind God said to all the animals of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground, everything that has the breath of life in it, He gives every green plant for food.” Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But His people do not know the requirements of their Father who is in Heaven. Consider the ravens, they do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. Go to the ant, and consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you, or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Almighty has done this?  In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Finding the Key that opens our Heart

 Art by Kelly J

I was born to share the truth that I find when living the life that was created just for me. A love that connects our heart in pure friendship and authentic truth. Our heart is the key to opening yourself to a world that is a paradise that is around you all of the time. The Great Mystery has written His perfect love and plan upon your heart. One day, as I was listening, I was given these words and this song.
 
 "While we are away, 
from our people we will pray,
in our spirit, we will find,
balance in our heart and mind"

Wisdom of our Elders

Artist Kelly J

I created this watercolor as I was thinking about our Elders and all they have been through. The wisdom they have gained through experiences. And the way they help us to live and get through this life. I wish my grandparents were still here today. It's sad that when were young we love them, but don't understand yet the wisdom they have and the question we can ask while they are still here. I would ask more questions about our family tree, and write more on photographs so the ones who they are passed down to would know all the details within the photo.

Love and Kindness

Artist Kelly J 

It has been said that it would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around the neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. Children and animals are so innocent when they are birthed into this world. It is up to us as adults to lead them and guide them down the right path. We are to love them and show them kindness above all.

the Simple Life

Artist Kelly J

I created this piece when I saw a lady feeding her chickens, and I thought how beautiful of a life. I have always wanted animals around me. I would love to have hundreds of acres where they could roam free from harm. I would love to see them being born and watch them grow and have their own, and keep their families and live in peace upon the land. That is a dream I have always had.

Purity and Innocence

Artist Kelly J

I love this piece, this was originally a photograph and I have seen it a few times, even painted. It speaks to my own heart. Children love animals, I am not sure what happens to many of us as we age, but we change and do not have the purity or innocence around us anymore. This speaks both purity and innocence which is my prayer for all man-kind, and the earth and it's people.

Thankful for each day given

Artist Kelly J

Every day, we should be thankful, thankful for not only our life, but our breath, and the beauty that surrounds us.  If you are not thankful, do all that you can to get back to the basics of life and living closer to nature.

A simpler life is a more thankful life because you see the gifts of life in the things like the leaves changing color upon the Tree's, birds that come and go with the seasons and even the ones that stay and make a home where you live. You more aware of the details in life and see the vibrant colors in a wildflower, or the life of a Bumble Bee as you watch it dance and play.

These are the kind of things I am thankful for, but most of all I am thankful for God who came into my life when I was 10 and helped me to know that He was real and I could have a relationship with him. From that moment in time, my life changed and I was forever thankful for life and all the amazing colors and beauty that I see surrounding me each and every day.

I always pray that God would keep me safe, when I am driving. That he would keep all the animals and people I come in contact with safe as well.  I have been blessed to never have had an accident or run over anything in 41 years of driving and prayer. 

Be Kind

Artist Kelly J

Kindness is a virtue. I love meeting people who are Kind. It makes life so much easier and puts a smile on faces. If we are called to walk in the light, we should strive to be Kind.

Seeking Truth


Art by Kelly J

Always seek the truth, live your life for what you were called to be and become, be thankful for what you have been given, live your life fully and freely, always be a light in this world, keep your children close and teach them goodness, be kind towards others, search and seek and you will always find your answers that our Creator placed into your very own heart for such a time as this.

Our Spirit is the Heart of the earth, I was thinking today about the term "what would Jesus do" and I was thinking about many scenarios that we face today. For example, if He were here today, would he have the animals surround him and love on them? or would he be killing and slaughtering them and eating them?  Would he encourage parents to have their children and teach them about the amazing times they will experience in their child's life? or would he perform the abortion and kill the children? Every choice we make in life, would be awesome if we could ask this simple question, of what would Jesus do? And choose His way.

Heaven in a Wild Flower

Artist Kelly J

“To see the World in a Grain of Sand
and Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
and Eternity in an hour.”

I love to draw and create. Each piece I share tells a story. I was born to love life. I have always been grateful for the beauty that has always been all around me. I am attracted to nature, wildlife, animals, kindness, and freedom. I love the change of seasons.

Our Creator and me

Artist Kelly J

On December 23rd, 2019 while driving home from work, I was singing a song by Chris Tomlin called "How great is our God" Listen here and for some reason it really moved me tonight. Maybe because it was live, and Chris was sharing the story of how the song came about.

I felt the presence of our Father so close to me, as it was playing and as I was basking in His presence. The words "How Great is our God" was being sung and at that exact moment, one of my favorite black Angus calves jumped into the air with such a joy filling its heart. It was a moment in time, I wanted to freeze and stay in for a while.

After that experience, I felt God calling me to share who He is to me. The reason why I have started this blog is to show how real and present He is in my life.

How close are you to God?

Artist Kelly J

I was thinking today while driving to work, how blessed I am to know my Father in heaven up close and personal. Many of us speak of Him in the past tense. We read our bibles and know of Him and the lessons and wisdom we have learned. But, how many go past that, and get to the point in life where you are living every day in His presence?

Today, the vehicle in front of me almost ran over a squirrel, I saw the little squirrel running and I thought it was hit as I slowed down to give it time and it looked up with a nut in its mouth and made it to the side of the road. I was thankful. But, on the next turn, another squirrel did not make it, he was laying on his side, gone. It made me sad.

I see my forever life many times, and in it, I am storing up all the things that I have been blessed to experience in this lifetime. One of the main things I store up is animals. When I see them dead on the roads, I always ask God if He would let them live in my forever life, then He always gives me a vision. This vision was of His hand picking up the squirrel and placing it in a tree that is in my forever life. The visions are always different. But, I am always able to have them there.

A passion I have is to be able to see all the animals that God has created, free to be who they were created to be. I want to see them in their natural state. Free to run and play and be themselves.

Thankful for Life

Artist Kelly J

I created this piece when I was walking down a street one day, and I was worshiping and singing. Life was good and I was in a great mood, thanking God for Life. And I heard some beautiful voices and God told me it was the wildflowers singing. I thought wow, what a blessing. It was a beautiful and spirit moment in time.

Peace Maker

Artist Kelly J 

Many times I go thru my day wondering how people can make certain choices that they do. It seems to me to be common sense. But, then I am reminded of a time in my own life, where I may have made a wrong decision, because I may not have learned or known, or because my flesh wanted it. Today, I try to make sure all my decisions come from my Father in heaven. Meaning, I always start my day asking Him to fill me full to overflowing with His love, His grace and His mercy towards others. I ask to see life from His infinite perspective verses my finite perspective. I try to live in the moment surrounded by His essence. It helps me to live as a Peace Maker. It keeps me living stress free and who He created me to be.

Set them Free

Artist Kelly J

I love to see a life, that is free to be who they are created to be and become. It's very rare to see anything in this world, live to it's full potential. We as a people, overall, like to control and manipulate for personal gain. It's how the term "it's the nature of the beast" came into play. We sadly live in a world that is run by the god of this world, and many follow him.  My life verse if from Matthew 7:13-13 which says “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."  It blows my mind how many follow the road that leads to destruction. All I can personally do is pray His will be done on this earth as it already is in heaven.

Trust and Obey

Artist Kelly J

Yeshua is real in my life, so real that He is, many times, close enough to kiss my cheek. The more we ask Him for wisdom, the closer we become. If we walk daily asking our Father for His will to be done in and through our lives, the more closely we walk with Him.

Speaking Softly

Artist Kelly J 

Silence is meaningful and thoughts come before speech. Silence before communicating is done in practice for being polite and respectful of the thought before the speaking. Thoughts are more powerful than words. But, words are more powerful when you speak them forth. Think before you speak and speak only words filled with Grace to build up others and not break them down.

Forever Grateful

Artist Kelly J

One time in life, I was really struggling. I was crying and asking my Father in heaven for help. He told me to get up and go to my window, which I did. He said to me "Do you see all those birds? I said Yes, Father. He said "Do I not take care of them all?" I said Yes, Father. He said "Then let me take care of you." From that moment in time forward, He has kept His promise. All my needs are met, and I am forever grateful!
