Item description for When Life Takes What Matters / No Rain, No Gain by Susan L. Lenzkes...
Overview When Life Takes What Matters and No Rain, No Gain have brought comfort to the grief-striken and hope to the storm-battered. Now these two books are combined in a larger print edition that is gentle on the eyes, even gentler on the heart. When Life Takes What Matters is a devotional of depth that first cries with us, then shows us how we can praise God in even our deepest anguish. No Rain, No Gain grew out of Susan's own flood of adversity. As her husband Herb battled terminal cancer, she painfully recognized the goodness found not only in spring showers, but also in torrents that threaten to wash away the very bedrock of life. Susan observed how hard it was "to see through this storm to a future and a hope." Yet there remains "a light to cut through the darkness of this earth's storms."
These two separate volumes grew out of Susan Lenzkes's own flood of adversity.

Comfort, not Sermons Oct 3, 2000
When we are hurting we don't always want to hear that we should "cheer up and trust God." Sometimes we just plain want to cry! Susan helps us cry through our pain to a loving God who is tenderly listening. Then she soothes our pain helping to give us strength to make it another day through scripture, encouragement, poems, and true life stories from the heart.
Susan is very familiar with pain...cancer stole first her Mom, then her Dad, and finally seven months later it claimed her husband Herb of 32 years. Shortly after that she lost her Mother-in-law to strokes. In her own words, "When you lose so much that's precious, you find the rain that is falling in your life is more from your eyes than from the skies." This is the book I want to curl up with when pain finds its way to me (and it will) and this is the book I want to share with my dear friends when they need gentle comforting, not a sermon. Unfortunately, there will come a time in everyone's life when they are going to need this book ... get it now so your comfort is just an arm's reach away.
