Got a letter from Grandma the other day.

She wrote:

The other day, I went up to a local Christian bookstore 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, I'm 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!

Why, while I was sitting there, the guy behind me started honking
like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed,
"For the love of GOD! 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 these 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. When I asked my teenage grandson in the back
seat what that meant, he said that it was probably a Hawaiian good
luck sign or something. Well, I've never met anyone from Hawaii; so
I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign 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 to all my sisters and
brothers, grinning, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed
I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light
changed again, and I 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!
