A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. Suddenly the sky clouded, and in a booming voice the Lord said, "Because you have tried to be faithful to me, I will grant you one wish".
The man said, "Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over anytime I want." The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the enormity of the undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it will take! It will nearly exhaust all the natural resources. 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. How she feels inside, what she's thinking when she's silent? Why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, and how to make her truly happy".
The Lord replied, "You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge? "
