About Me

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

9/11 - Moving On, But Without Forgetting


It has been 7 years since our country was attacked by terrorists. It has been 7 years since the family members of those who worked in the Twin Towers have seen their relatives, friends and co-workers. It's been 7 years since most of us have thought about how very fragile and precious life is. It has been seven years since "ordinary" men and women, risked their lives to save others they did not know. And it has been 7 years since many have remembered to keep those families in our prayers.

We said we'd never forget, but somehow, we have.

It has been 2,000 years since God came to earth, suffered and died for the souls of all who were once enemies of God. Who were and are the enemies of God? The entire human race. For we all have sinned and fall short of the glory (perfection) of God. We broke God's Law, but Christ paid the penalty for our crime, and He set us free. Free to do whatever we want? No, free to no longer live in a hostile relationship towards God. Free to be accepted by the LORD God Almighty. Free to sacrifice our conveniences for the sake of others. Free to love people we don't know and give our lives, like Christ gave His.

For those of us who have repented and trusted in the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord - the day we begged for forgiveness and confessed our sins, was the day we vowed we would never forget what He did for us....but sometimes we do.

Let us not allow our past sins to hold us back with the bondage of guilt. But let us remember them to learn from them and use the lessons from our sins as a catalyst to spur us on toward love and good works.

If you told God you'd never forget what He sacrificed for you...then live as if you mean it.

Please remember the families of 9/11 in your prayers as often as the Holy Spirit leads you. Please remember to thank God constantly for His sacrifice for us.


Here is a visual to help all of us give honor where honor is due:

"The Tribute in Light is was a temporary art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center from March 11 to April 14, 2002 to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 attacks." ~ FoxNews


remembering & honoring with you,

  1. Hi Sunny, thank you for this post and also for your comment on my post. And, there is nothing to beg forgiveness for!

    Here in Australia we have stopped to remember 9/11, as we woke to find the other side of the world in turmoil! The effects of that day certainly left a mark on not only Australia but on the entire world. Personally I cannot even look at a plane overhead when it's banking in the sky as it reminds me of 9/11. I have friends and family in the States, so they were the first people on my mind on that fateful day.

    A lovely post, and a great reminder that we must NOT forget what our Saviour did for us. Thank you again!

    In Him, Paula :-)

  2. I remember this day so well. And, then I actually went to the site this past Christmas. So surreal. Sometimes things happen for reasons so hard to believe and comprehend.

    Isaiah 26:9 "For when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness."

    Lord, help heal our land and help our nation turn to you.
