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

Dear Grandchildren,

The other day I put a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker on my car. 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. While I was sitting there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed 'Gor 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. There must have been a man from Floriday 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 your uncle in the back seat what that meant. He said it was 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. Your uncle burst out laughing. Even he was enjoying this religious experience! 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 I felt kind of sad that I had to leave all my newfound friends after all the love we had shared. I slowed down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one more time as I drove away.

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma
