Got a letter from Grandma the other day.
She writes:

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
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 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
in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

Then 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 caugh 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 of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good
luck sign one
last time as I drove away.

Smiles,- - -Charlie S :^)

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!
