Grandma Still Drives

Grandma is 88 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 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 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 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. He was enjoying this religious experience too !!

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 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 behind 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
