Grandma writes,

The other day I went to the local Christian book store

and saw a honk if you love Jesus bumper sticker.

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had

just come from a thrilling choir practice, followed

by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the

sticker and put it on my bumper.

On my way home I was stopped at a red light at a

busy intersection, just lost in the thought about the

Lord and how good He is. I didn't notice the light

had changed.

It's a good thing someone else loves Jesus because

if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus.

Why ?

Well, while I was sitting there, the guy behind me

started honking like crazy, and then he leaned

out and screamed, "for the love of God, Go! Go!"

What a cheerleader he was for Jesus.

Everyone started honking !

I just leaned out my window and started waving

and smiling at all these loving people. I even

honked my horn a few times to share in the love.

I saw one guy waving with only his middle finger

stuck up in the air. When I asked my teenage

grandson in the back seat what that meant, he

said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign

or something. So I leaned out and gave him the

good luck sign back. My grandson burst out

laughing, even he was enjoying this religious

experience right along with me.

A couple of people were so caught up in the joy

they got out of their cars and started toward me.

I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I

attended, but this is when I noticed the light

had changed...

So, I waved to all my sisters and brothers, and

drove on through the intersection. I noticed I

was the only car that got through before the light

changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to

leave after all the love we had shared.

So, I slowed my car down , learned out my window

and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign

one last time as I drove away.

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks !

Love, Grandma....
