Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large, raging, violent river. Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed, "God, please give me the strength to cross the river." POOF!  God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across in about two hours, almost drowning twice.

After witnessing that, the second man prayed, "God, give me the strength and the tools to cross the river." POOF! God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and legs and he was able to cross the river in about an hour after almost capsizing once.

Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed,"God, please give me the strength and the tools and the intelligence to cross the river." POOF! He was turned into a woman! She checked the map, hiked a hundred yards upstream and walked across the bridge.

Guys, if at first you don't succeed, do it the way your wife told you.

(Not sure where this originated, but thanks, Carolyn for sharing it with me!)
