A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer when all of
a sudden he said aloud, "Lord grant me one wish". The sky clouded and
a booming voice said, "Because you have tried to be faithful I will
grant you one wish." The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can
drive over anytime I want to".
The Lord answered, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the
logistics of that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach
the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take. I can
do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly
things. Take a little more time to think of another wish, a wish you
think would honor and glorify me".
The man thought for a long time and finally said, "Lord, I wish that I
could understand women. I want to know what they feel inside , what
they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they
cry, what they mean when they say 'nothing', and how I can make a
woman truly happy?"
God took a deep breath and said, "YOU WANT TWO LANES OR FOUR ON THAT BRIDGE???"
