A letter from Grandma . . . . . . . . . Grandma is eighty-eight years old
and still drives her own car. She writes:

Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went to our local Christian bookstore and saw a ‘Honk if you
love Jesus’ bumper sticker’

I was feeling particularly happy 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, what an
uplifting experience that followed.

I stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about
the Lord, and I didn’t notice that the lights had changed.

It is a good thing that 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 of 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.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out of the window and
gave him the good luck sign right back.

My grandson burst out laughing. Why, even he, was enjoying this religious

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 that 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 of 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.
