One day a man was walking down the beach in deep prayer. Suddenly he stops and looks to the sky and says, "Lord, grant me one wish."
The sky clouds over and the booming voice of God rains down from the heavens. "My son, you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways. For this, I will grant you one wish."
The man replies, "Build a bridge across the ocean to Hawaii so that I can drive over any time I want."
God replies in a horrified tone, "Your wish is too materialistic! Think of the logistics! Think of how much concrete and steel it would take just to make supports to reach the bottom of the ocean! I can do it, but I cannot justify your desire for worldly things. Think for a while longer and try to come up with a wish that would better honor and glorify me."
After long and careful consideration, the man states his new wish. "I wish I could understand women. I want to know how they feel, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they really mean when the say 'nothing', and how to make them truly happy."
After a few moments, God replies, "Did you want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
