She is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car.

Dear Granddaughter:

The other day I went 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, an uplifting experience 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's 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 t hose 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,
and 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 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 and grinned 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 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
