    Dear Family,

    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.

    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,

    Granny Mabel
