Grandma still drives

Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives

her own car. She writes:

Dear Grand-daughter,

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 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; 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 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 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 those loving


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


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 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 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, grinning, I waved at all my brothers

and sisters, and drove on through the


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


Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma
