One 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 and in a booming voice the Lord said, "Because you have been faithful to me, I will grant you one small request."

The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over any time I want to."

The Lord said, "Your request is extremely materialistic and on top of that you're asking for a lot!! Think of the logistics of that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific Ocean! The concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is not really what I meant by 'one small request.' Take a little more time and think of another wish of lesser magnitude, a wish you think would honor and glorify me."

The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "Lord, I have been married and divorced four times. All of my wives said that I am uncaring and 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,' and how I can make a woman truly happy."

After a few minutes God replied, "Do you want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?"
