Girl gets a shocking letter from her grandmother. This is perfect…

My Grandma Carol is 87 years old and still drives her own car. Yesterday I got a letter from her that I just had to share. She writes:

Dear Allie my farovite granddaughter,

Last week I went up to our local Christian book store, you know the one across from Mcdonalds. Anyways I saw a ‘Honk if you love Jesus’ bumper sticker.

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a uplifting choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.

So, I bought the sticker and put it the bumper of my Buick.

And Allie, I was so I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light on Reynolds road. It’s a very busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, 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 in the pickup truck behind me 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 Kevin (her 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.
Kevin burst out laughing.

Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!! And you know he hasn’t been to church in a long time.

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, Grandma
