Honk If You Love Jesus

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

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..

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

  1. This is fantastic! If only I didn’t just read about it but experienced it in real life her grandson did. That would be one memory I’d never forget! 🙂

  2. A hoot and a holler and definitely worth the dollar.

  3. There’s a lot to be said for being oblivious!

    Years ago I pulled up behind a car with a “Honk if you love Jesus” bumper sticker. There were no other cars, so I decided to give the driver a friendly beep. Well! He turned around and gave me a very nasty look. I guess he forgot what was on his bumper!!

  4. I grinned the first time – whenever that was – and again this time 🙂

    • Hey Richard, I’m having my first cuppa this morning reading your comment….. I agree with an earlier comment on this post, It would have been fun to be in her Grandson’s position and seen the whole experience happen!!!!! LOL

      Take Care my Friend and God Bless 🙂 Kenny T

  5. …and this memory would be talked and laughed about at every family gathering forever and ever!!!!! LOL
