A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. 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 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 enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required 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 man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said, "You're right Lord, it is very selfish of me. I wish then, 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 I would like to know how I can make that woman truly happy." The Lord replied, "You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
Some people are like Slinkies- Not really good for anything, But they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
