    Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. Shewrites:

    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 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.

    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 intersection giving them the new Hawaiian good luck sign.

    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

    Knee slapp'n Highlarious! I am still laugh'n. I can picture this little old lady flipp'n people off.

    A true story. My dad and mom lived about 90 miles away from me, and occasionaly would come to visit for the weekend. The road they had to travel was a busy main highway and you had best keep up with traffic.
    We were eating dinner on one of those visits and mom told us that she knew dad was aquainted with a lot of people, but she was not aware he knew so many of them. She said that everyone that passed them blew their horn and waved at them.
    In his later years dad rarely exceeded 40mph. The speed limit on this road was 60mph. I expect a few of those waves were Hawaiian waves.

    I pray that I die as did my grandmother - quietly in her sleep.


    Rather than screaming and yelling, like all the passengers in her car...
