Grandma's letter.

She is eighty-eight years 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 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

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 notice d.

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 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 teenage grandson

in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or


Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii ,

so I leaned out the wind ow 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, I waved at all my brothers and sisters

grinning, and drove on through the intersection.

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 folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma

Thanks Mike Molloy
