Answered prayers

old_womens_hands_403“Sometimes God’s greatest punishment comes when He answers our prayers.” That’s a comment by Addy Whimple, a character in my book, Ask Me Again. In her ninety-plus years of life, Addy has seen joy and heartache, but no matter what trials she endures, she never loses her faith in God. That quality endears her to the book’s hero, Mark Cartier. Typically focused on making money and acquiring expensive possessions, Mark finds himself on an uncharacteristic mission to bring some joy back to Addy’s life. Can you related to Addy’s words? Has God ever answered your prayers in a way you didn’t expect?
