A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer.
Suddenly the sky clouded above his head, and 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 that I can drive over any time I want”.
The Lord said, “your request is very materialistic.Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The support required to reach the bottom of pacific ! The concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhoust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that would honour and glorify me.”
The man thought about it for a long time.
Finally he said, “Lord, I wish that I could understand my wife. I want to know how she feels inside, what she is thinking when she gives me the silent treatment; why she cries; what she means when she really says nothing is wrong and how can I make a woman truly happy.”
And the Lord replied “You want two lanes or four on that bridge”.
