Honk If You
Love Jesus

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 I put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did! What an up-lifting 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 loved 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! 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.

I asked my teenage grandson, who was
sitting in the back seat, what it meant, and 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 me 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.

Praise the Lord
for such
wonderful folks!
