Red Light Granny - Her Letter

The other day I went to the 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 practice, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

On my way home I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in the thought about the Lord and how good He is. I didn't notice the light had changed.

It's 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.


Well, while I was sitting there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out and screamed, "for the love of God, Go! Go!". What a cheerleader he was for Jesus.

Then, lots of other people started honking. I just leaned out 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. I saw one guy waving with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. When I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant, he said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. So I leaned out and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out laughing, even he was enjoying this religious experience right along with me.

A couple of people were so caught up in the joy they got out of their cars and started toward 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 to all my sisters and brothers and drove on through the intersection. I noticed I was the only car that got through before the light changed again and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave after all the love we had shared.

So I slowed my car down, leaned out my window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!

Love, Grandma
