Pinkie was walking along a California beach and was in deep prayer to the Lord. "Lord, he said, "You 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 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. Because you have been faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish."

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