A man was walking along a California beach and was in deep prayer to the
Lord. He said, "Lord, you have promised to give me the desires of my heart.
That's what I am asking you for right now. Please give me a confirmation
that you will grant my wish."

Suddenly the sky clouded up over his head and the Lord in a booming voice
spoke to him. "I have searched your heart and determined it to be pure. The
last time I issued a blank wish request it was to Solomon. He didn't
disappoint me with his request for wisdom. I think I can trust that you
won't disappoint me either. Because you have been faithful to me in all
ways, I will grant you one wish you ask for."

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always wanted
to go to Hawaii, but I'm deadly afraid of flying and I get very seasick on
boats. Could you build a bridge to Hawaii, so I can drive over there to
visit whenever I want?"

The Lord laughed and said, "That's impossible! Think of the logistics of
that! How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of
how much concrete . . . how much steel!!! Your request is very
materialistic, a little disappointing. I could do it, but it's hard for me
to justify you craving for worldly things. Take a little more time and think
of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify Me as well."

The man thought about it for a long while and tried to think of a really
good wish. Finally, he said, "Here's the deal, Lord. I've been married and
divorced four times. My wives always said that I don't care and that I'm
insensitive. So I wish that I could understand women . . . I want to know
how they feel inside and what they're thinking when they give me the silent
treatment . . . I want to know why they're crying . . . I want to know what
they really mean when they say 'Nothing' . . . I want to know how to make
them truly happy . . . That's the wish that I want, Lord."

After a few minutes, God said, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
