Dear Granddaughter,

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,
