A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden, he said out of the blue, "Lord, please grant me one wish."
The sky clouded over above his head and in a booming voice, the Lord said, "Because you have been faithful to me in every way, I will grant you one wish."
The man said, "Build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive across anytime I want." The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and 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 and think of another wish, a wish you think would honour and glorify me." The man thought about it for a very long time.
Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that 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."
The Lord replied, "Do you want two or three lanes on that bridge?"
