    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.

    reminds me of that Jasper Carrott sketch about his elderly parent, it went something like

    "....he has been driving for 50 years and never had an accident...seen hundreds of them though!" :))
