"Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?" ~Evan Almighty "God"

"If I chased my shadow into the light of day,
would it vanish long enough just to hear me say
that I like the lime glazing the grass and
the water that douses the sky,
the perfect breeze across this world that whisks away the lies.
I love the melody across the creek and
the fire roaring in the sun
would it take me away before I was told it was real by anyone?
Could I listen for the breath of a blue jay's sigh,
could I whisper "I'll be back"
before I say goodbye?"
