I got a letter from my grandmother the other day.
Today 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 put it on my bumper. I stopped at a red light at a busy intersection and was lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is that 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!

Why, 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! Jesus Christ, go!"
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 the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yell something about a "sunny beach"...
I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. Then, I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that 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 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 that was when I noticed that the light had changed. Hence, I waved to all my brothers and sisters, grinned and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love that we 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!
