Dear 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, I waved at all my brothers and sisters
grinning, 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
