A man walking along a beach in California was deep in prayer. Suddenly, he said out loud: “God grant me one wish”.
The sunny California sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice God 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, 3000 miles long, so I can drive there any time I want”.
God replied: “Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports and the material required to reach the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. The concrete and steel it would take over thousands of miles. 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 another wish. A wish you think would honor and glorify me.
The man thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said: “God, I wish I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say NOTHING, and how I can make a woman truly happy”.
God replied: “You want two or four lanes on that bridge”?
