"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"

He takes a paint brush to her ivory skin
and matches it with the color of the soft, pink lips that hide
whatever lies within
then adds a dimple on the side that gathers next to
a radiant smile
the one with the rose-colored lips and makes
living another day worth the while.
He plasters on each new feature, all of them shiny and bright
and when he's finished, he sets down his brush to admire his
new dove.
But he doesn't realize what he's set down
is a bullet in a palm of love.
