Inspirational story about courage and heart - I got a call about a month ago from a single mother who had the courage five years ago to leave an abusive, negative 20-year marriage. She is raising her six-year-old son, Elliott, who has Down Syndrome, and teen-aged daughter Emmalee on her own with very limited finances. Spending $250 on a Shield was a big deal and a gigantic leap of faith. She struggled with the decision over whether she should get Shields for herself or her children first.

Susan’s Leap of Faith
There are times that I am reminded very beautifully why the Shield is so important, andwhat a difference it can make.I got a call about a month ago from a single mother who had the courage five years ago toleave an abusive, negative 20-year marriage. She is raising her six-year-old son,Elliott, who has Down Syndrome, and teen-aged daughter Emmalee on her own with verylimited finances. Spending $250 on a Shield was a big deal and a gigantic leap of faith. Shestruggled with the decision over whether she should get Shields for herself or her childrenfirst. She finally concluded that as the care-giver her calm and strength would benefit herfamily greatly, so she ordered her silver heart Shield.The day after Susan got the Shield I got this email. Ibelieve Virginia and I both received daily thank youemails for at least a week. This is why we arehere…this is what we’re all about. Making adifference one person at a time.
 “Carolyn, Last night we had severe thunderstormsfor a few hours. Elliott was very unsettled as theywere approaching. He could feel the vibrations. Iheld him close to me and he settled down and wentright to sleep! Even was snoring through the loudthunder as it was upon us! We had hail and wehave a metal roof on our house! He slept in my arms. I did not put him down until thestorm passed. I think my shield affected him as well!” 
A week after her Shield arrived Susan wrote again:
 “My Emmalee picked up a few sniffles and has been irritable....I had several chances to bestressed out with her and just wasn't! I got the sniffles and still walked 6 miles yesterday!Took a break as I am stiff from walking 2 extra miles than usual!!It has been nearly a week of wearing my shield...I have worn it 24/7 since except when Itake a shower! I love it!” 
Susan gave me permission to share her story with you, and requested that I include moreof her story. I hope you’re as inspired by her courage as I am. Carolyn
 “As a single Mom, this is something I did for myself for great self-care. I liken it to puttingmy oxygen mask on first and then I can help my family and others. Self care is notsomething that most of us do...we put others first.This May would have been my 25th anniversary. Silver is usually associated with that. Ipurchased my Shield as a gift to me from God. Now He is my Husband. He holds my heart.He guards my heart. He has restored my heart. He has filled my heart with fresh hope,love and energy!
 
 
Refined As Silver 
Malachi 3:3 says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."A silversmith explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.Think about the times when you are in a hot spot in life. You wonder why God allows you tostay there?The silversmith said that he had to sit and hold the silver in front of the fire all the time, andhis eyes had to be on the silver all the time.If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed. But how doesthe silver smith know when the silver is fully refined?The silversmith answered is this, "Oh, that's easy - when I see my image in it."If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on you and willkeep watching you until He sees His image in you5/4/09 “I now have my silver heart....a strong heart...representing the past 5 years of healing andrecovery.
Here is something I wrote a few years ago. Now I feel complete.
 Susan : )January 16, 2005, about 6 months since I had decided to file for deliverance (divorce)I spent some time with my God, in the shower of all places...he just briefly gave me aglimpse of how He is transforming my once broken heart into a whole heart...here is whatHe gave me when I spent the time a bit later to write it all down...While in the shower this morning, I got this image in my mind…Hooks into my heart…theverbal abuse ripped into me and the barbs on the hooks would rip big tears into thesurface. Over a period of time the hooks and barbs would go deeper and deeper, causingme to second-guess myself and doubt my abilities as a person, wife, mother and friend.Over the past 20 years, the remaining part of my heart was so scarred that the surface of my heart became hard with the scarred skin, taunt and rough edges, almost unrecognizableas the organ of emotions that is actually was. It was a mass of moving muscle at best;functioning at the lowest level possible while still maintaining life. The years of adrenalinepumping through it, being stuck in survival mode had done much damage. It looked asthough it was barely holding together; ready to burst at any moment. As the blood pumpedthrough it, was hard to watch as the seams from the scars would bulge and some places
 
even small squirts of blood oozed out with each pump. The pulse and tempo of the beatwere very evident. At times, there would be a pause or sometimes a skip of a beat as theheart became more sluggish when the loss of blood had brought its volume down. It wascold and numb and exhausted. The very life was slowly draining out of me a few drops at atime.Seeing this, and hearing me cry out to Him, God in His compassion, tenderly, with His hugehands reached down and picked up my limp, tired heart. It seemed to relax at His gentletouch. Held for a brief moment still and then slowly massaged and caressed so it couldagain gain warmth and feeling…the heart began to take on a new look, it glistened wherethere was once leathery seams of scars; they were erased by His touch. Faint white lineswhere the bulging seams once were now remained. These only served as reminders of Hisability to heal and restore. The faint scar lines, when looked into the fine print of them, youcan read, “I will strengthen your heart, Susan. I will put in you a new heart. I will restoreyour heart.” (Be of good courage, And I shall strengthen your heart, As you, Susan, hopein the LORD. Psalm 31:24) (He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no mightHe increases strength. Isaiah 40:29) The designs upon the newly formed heart now lookedfeminine and lacy….pretty, not abused. The heart was also filled up with His Precious Bloodto the capacity it needed to pump generously. It began to pump with new life and vigor asit was created to be sending it surges throughout my entire emotional system. --I could feelagain! Vague, sporadic pains reminded me that I needed to recover and rest from the “heart surgery” that was just performed. So rest in His arms I did…and still am. Duringthis recovery time, my once ripped-apart heart, now mended is resembling a new, wholeheart.I will continue to apply God’s Word as medicine to cause it to stay in repair. I will listen toHis Spirit speak life into my heart, building up with strength so that I can again run with fullforce. Wholeness, fresh joy and peace preside over this heart of mine.Thank You, Father, for restoration and rejuvenation to wholeness.Your “whole-hearted” daughter, Susan : )I wrote this as an act of faith that I would someday be completely whole!! And thatsomeday is today!!I plan on purchasing a Shield for both of my children as the funds are available. I know theShield has made an impact on my life and it will on theirs also.I want to share these wonderful Shields with everyone I know!Susan : )
