Bridging the Gap
A biker was riding on a highway along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming voice, the Lord said:
"Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish."
The biker pulled over and said: "Lord, please build a bridge from California to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want."
The Lord said, "Your request is materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required would have to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. 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 something that would honor and glorify me."
The biker thought about it for a long time.
Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that I could understand my wife. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, and how I can make a woman truly happy."
The Lord replied, "'Bout that bridge -- you want two lanes or four?"
