There is no Fear in Love

Artist Kelly J 

"Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Seek to make your life long and of service to people. Show respect to all life. When you arise in the morning, give thanks, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself"

We are all here to figure out how to really love

Artist Kelly J

I am first nations and while I have learned much from life, I have never lost my native roots and heart to the sense of right and justice. When I reduce civilization to it's most basic terms, it becomes a system of life based on trade. Each person stakes his power, his product of labor, his social, political and religious standing against his neighbor. To gain what?

What once was

Artist Kelly J 

Long before I heard of Yeshua, I knew God. I perceived what goodness is. I saw and loved what is really beautiful. Mankind has not taught me anything better! Our transition from our natural life to the artificial life of civilization has resulted in great spiritual and moral loss.

A Special Gift

Artist Kelly J

I am an animal lover, I always have been, today I got to see baby birds almost ready to fly, in a nest that was made so beautifully it looked to be laced in flowers. Animals are a special gift to us from God. They teach us so much about life. About partnership, about unity and so much more.

becoming one

Artist Kelly J 

 There is a fine line between becoming one with your mate, while maintaining your God-given identity. But always remember who brought you together. He calls you to become one, to honor one another, to love one another, and to remain together until He calls you home.

become like little children

 Artist Kelly J

It is wonderful to think of Yeshua interacting with a child. Children are know almost nothing about life. They function mostly on emotion rather than reason. Yet He said, “The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” and He told those following Him, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven”

Charlie Vandergaw and Bear Haven

Artist Kelly J 

I drew this out of my love for a true story I heard a few decades ago. The story was beautiful when it was first released. It was Charlie's life story of living for over 20 years in the Alaska Wilderness with Black Bears and Grizzly Bears. Throughout those years he developed a bond with these Bears, and lived among them. Over time he called his place "Bear Haven". The Bears got so use to Charlie that they started to trust him around their young. For over 2 decades it was a sanctuary, so to speak. I believe it still would be a sanctuary if Charlie did not tell anyone. But, once the word got out everything changed for him. It made me really sad for Charlie and all the Bears who he individually named and knew them all and there amazing personalities. I hold this true story close to my heart, knowing that paradise does exist in many places upon this earth.

We shall remain

Artist Kelly J

I will never understand how the superior wisdom of our Native Elders was not able to overcome the Pioneers who settled America. They were clearly in touch with a force greater than themselves and still are.

Show Them Love Without Limits

Artist Kelly J 

Children are mirrors that teach you about yourself.  Our Creator teaches us how all children are a gift from Him. Every single life, every single child, is a reward and blessing. Whether they're bringing their parents pride and joy, or whether they are teaching us how to be more patient and forgiving, children are a gift from above. God knows that children can bring us closer to Him and help us to grow our character.

Nature Signals

Artist Kelly J 

My people love nature and live close to it. We call the redheaded woodpecker the signal bird. If it pecks on the house or a tree near the house that is a signal danger is near and we must use precaution. Should a signal bird fly in front of one who has started on a trip, he knows danger lies ahead and he should return home. When Josephine was little, she lived with her grandmother. She was always happy when she could go to see her mother. One morning soon after they had started, the signal bird flew in front of them.
“No, no! We must not go on. There is danger!” suddenly cried the grandmother.
“But we have just started! Why must we go back?” asked Josephine.
“Didn’t you see the signal bird fly in front of us? We must not go on!”
“I want to see my mother. I do not want to stay!” protested Josephine.
“We cannot ignore the bird’s warning,” her grandmother said firmly.
Josephine was so angry, when she got home, she took the blowgun her grandfather used, and went out to find the signal bird. Soon she saw him and blew an arrow at him. It caught his wing and he fluttered to the ground. Josephine ran and picked him up. After she removed the arrow, she held him so he could not get away. She took him to her grandmother. “Here, Grandmother, is the signal bird that flew in front of us,” she said as she opened her hands.
“Oh, Josephine, why did you do this?” scolded her grandmother when she saw the dead bird.
“I did not mean to kill him but I am not sorry,” she said stubbornly.
“He was warning us of danger. You should not have killed him!”
“He would not let me see my mother! I did not like him!”
At that moment her grandfather came in to the house.
“The river is up; you do not go today! It is so swift you could not cross,” he explained.
“Do you understand now, Josephine? 
We might have been drowned if the signal bird had not stopped us.”
Josephine could say nothing but a tear rolled down her cheek.

we are stewards of this earth

Artist Kelly J 

For every animal of the forest is our Creators, even the cattle on a thousand hills. He know all the birds of the hills, and all that moves in the field are His. We might think we own animals, in particular our pets, but our Creator teaches us that these are not ours. We are only stewards of what He has given to us.

Our Creator speaks to the animals

Artist Kelly J

Our Creator told Noah to build an ark in order to save his family, and the animals from the coming flood. When it was time for the flood to begin, the animals went into the ark because their Creator communicated with them directly, and they responded.

When Elijah fled from Ahab, king of Israel, he went to an area east of the Jordan River where our Creator commanded ravens to bring him food while he was there, and they did. Our Creator interacts with animals more than we realize.

He knows every hair upon our Head

Artist Kelly J 

Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his animals, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel. When Yeshua was teaching His disciples, He was trying to communicate to them to not worry about their own life and “do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body. Our Father in heaven values us above his creatures, but even a tiny sparrow, which is valued at less than one penny to us, is still valuable to God, meaning that He cares for His creatures and cares deeply about how we treat them, regardless of how small or insignificant they are. If you know someone who is cruel to their animals or pets, they may not be saved, because a righteous person should care for their animals, and in fact, they should have regard for all animals, whether they own them or not. The righteous should care enough about the welfare of their own animals but also the welfare of other animals who might not be receiving proper care and might be treated cruelly. Remember that these are God’s creatures, not ours, and we will be accountable for how we take care of them or neglect them.

Puppies and Dogs

Artist Kelly J

One time my husband and I were chatting and I do not remember the situation, but it was something to do with our dogs. And my response was "God only gives them to us for a little while, then He takes them back" well, my husband never forgot that and we use it every now and again, when something comes up, and we may want to spoil them a little.

A little piece of Paradise

I have about a 40 minute drive to work, which is a little piece of Paradise for me. It's my alone time with God. And it is also my time to see and visit many of my animal friends along the way. It's a time I cherish.

Storing up treasures in heaven

Artist Kelly J

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

A while back I asked God what I could store up as my treasure in heaven. Then that night I had a dream and I saw the New Heaven and the New Earth and I was there, I was in what I could only call paradise. I was in a Garden with all kinds of amazing Tree's and there were all types of animals there and waterfalls. I was able to walk barefoot and live with Nature. Everything there was beautiful and clean and full of color and innocence and life. So, now every time I see an animal that has been killed before their time, I ask if I can store them up as my treasure. If I am to have a life eternal, I would want there to be every animal that our Creator has made, there. I would love it to also be filled with every type of Wildflower and green soft grass and Herbs.

Not of this world

Hoping that no one ever takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit according to the traditions of mankind and the elemental spirits of this world. When we get to the point where we can hear the voice of the Most High, this world will no longer have anything to offer us, because the storehouse of heaven becomes opened and it's riches are poured out upon us in abundance.

Independence

Live as people who are free, not using freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of the Most High.  Yeshua has set us free, so stand firm and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery, where the Great Spirit is, there is always freedom.

Treasure of Kindness

Artist Kelly J

Kindness is a virtue and Love is patient and kind, itt does not envy or boast, it's not proud. It does not dishonor others, it's not self-seeking, nor easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Guard well within yourself the treasure of kindness.
