  • Letter From Grandma

    Dear Granddaughter,

    The other day I went into the Christian Bookshop and saw
    a Honk If You Love Jesus bumper sticker. I was feeling
    pretty sassy that particular day as I had just come from choir
    practice so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

    I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection and
    thought about the Lord and how good he is and I didn't
    notice that the lights had changed. It's a good thing that
    someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd
    never have noticed.

    I found out why lots of people love Jesus. Why while I was
    sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and
    when he leaned out of his window and screamed, "for the
    love of God GO!" What an exuberant cheerleader he was for

    Everyone started honking! I just leaned out 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 of
    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 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 that the lights had
    changed. So I waved to all my brothers and sisters and,
    grinning, drove through the intersection.

    I noticed that 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.

    All my love,
