Joke Friday

in

A biker was riding 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, "Build a bridge 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 to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural reso urces. 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 b iker 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 this woman truly happy."

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

Very funny! While he's at it, do you think God will heal the amputees?

It's getting harder and harder to figure out who's religious, and who's making fun of the religious on the internet these days!

So, this is telling me that God won't help me understand my husband: why he gives me the silent treatment, why he says "nothing" when i ask him what's wrong, or why he says he doesn't know when i ask him what he's thinking about.

Nor is it likely that God will tell me why guys make jokes that turn these things around: why the ‘joke’ is that women are the ones who don’t communicate while guys claim not to “be mind readers,” in one breathe, and then in the next, they ‘joke’ that we communicate to a fault.

And so, I guess this all means that God is going to give me the building I asked him for…
