Wish

A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden he said out loud, "Lord grant me one wish."

Suddenly the sky clouded above his head & 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 to."

The Lord said, "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 & 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 & think of another wish, a wish you think would honor & glorify me."

The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I have been married & divorced four times. All of my wives said that I am uncaring & insensitive. I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say "nothing" & how I can make a woman truly happy"

After a few minutes God said, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
