Smile and the world smiles with you

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
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, "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,"You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
