Dear Grand-daughter, ��� The other day I went up to our 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 performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting. ��� So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.
Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed. ��� I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. ��� It �is 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! ��� While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like �crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'
'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' ��� What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! ��� Everyone started honking! ��� I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. ��� I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!
There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach... ��� I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the �air. ��� I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. ��� He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. ��� Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. ��� My grandson burst out laughing. ��� Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!
A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. ��� I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. ��� So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through �the intersection. ��� I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. ��� So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.�Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! ��� Will write again soon, ��� Love, �Grandma
