A man walking along a California beach is deep in prayer. All of a sudden, he said out loud, “Lord, Grant me one wish.”
The sunny Californian sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice, the Lord said, “Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish”
The man said, “Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want.”
The Lord replied, “Your request is very materialistic, think if the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports will have to reach down to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Just think about the amount of concrete and steel that would have to be used! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your worldly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honour and glorify me.”
The man thought about it for a long time, when finally he said, “Lord, I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are they thinking when they give the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say ‘nothing’ and how can I make them truly happy.
The Lord replied, “Do you want 2 lanes or four lanes on that bridge?”
