Tueday Tidbits

Grandma is 80 yrs old and still drives her own car. She writes:

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 pretty
sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir practice,
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. I found lots of people that love
Jesus! 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! Go! Jesus Christ GO!” What an
exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking! I 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 teenaged grandson in the back seat
what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian sign for good
luck 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 he was even 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. It was a good thing
someone else loved Jesus because if they hadn’t honked, I’d have
never noticed that the light had changed! So, grinning, I waved to
all my brothers and sisters, and drove through the intersection.

I did 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 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
