About Me

My photo

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.

When You Celebrate, Don't Forget...
...the fathers & mothers, sons & daughters, brothers & sisters, uncles & aunts, cousins & grandparents, who sacrificed their lives, so that, we can celebrate this special day Memorial Day with all our family members. The cost of freedom is not free. "Memorial Day, which falls on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while serving in the American military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer...It was first widely observed on May 30, 1868..." ~ quote found on: History.com Many willingly, lovingly and proudly gave up the their lives, their hopes and dreams, so that you and your family can live out theirs.

My Second Love

My Second Love

I'm so thankful to the LORD for providing me with my second love -- my darling husband! After listening to many women throughout my life, hearing from many of you here and also from the precious sisters from My Second Love: A Proverbs 31 Study  Bible study, I have come to realize how very rare my husband is. And I don't mean compared to men of this world, as I don't compare my husband to any of them. For what does light have to do with darkness (2 Corinthians 6:15, Galatians 6:4)? But really, I don't compare my husband with anyone else's either, as this too, is not pleasing in the sight of the Lord . I do, however, compare my husband with what God's word says about a husband and what he ought to be like: "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her, that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that He might present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkl

Loving the Unlovable

For many of us, the phrase, "Love the unlovable" is not new. It's noble, it's Christ-like and it is extremely difficult for most of us to faithfully and diligently do. "For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers [and sisters], what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." ~ Matthew 5:46-48 Like most people, I suffer from the great battle that wars within me to do what my Lord and Savior Jesus commands me to do—love the unlovable. I find myself struggling to extend love or kindness to someone who basically smacks me in the face with every opportunity they get. These are not the kind of people I naturally inclined to love, share God's kindness with or really, desire to be around...at all. These are usually the type of people I try to keep at least a 1-mile rad

Not Good News, But GREAT News!

Not Good News, But GREAT News!

These were the exact words of my Cardiologist today, "I don't have good news about your heart today. I have GREAT news!" Thank you all for your prayers! ♥ I had my follow-up appointment with my Cardiologist today to discuss the results of my stress echo and echo I had undergone within the past few weeks. All glory and praise be to God my Father who gives us all good things according to His will! Whether the news was good or seemingly "bad" (meaning, it wasn't what I wanted to hear); I trust what the LORD my God has said - He alone is good, therefore everything He does is good, regardless of how I may feel about it, or how others may view it. The truth is the truth. And God is Truth. "O LORD, what is man that You regard him, or the son of man that you think of him?" ~ Psalm 144:3 "As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my Help and my Deliverer; do not delay O my God!" ~ Psalm 40:17 In the past few

"If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him." ~ C.T. Studd
