A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer.
Suddenly the 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 I
will grant you one wish." The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I
drive over anytime I want."
The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the
enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required
reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! It
will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is
for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time
and think of something that would honor and glorify me.
The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I
that I could understand my wife! I want to know how she feels
what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she
cries, what she means when she says 'nothing's wrong', and how I can make
woman truly happy."
The Lord replied, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
