The other day I went to the local religious book store, where I saw a
HONK IF YOU LOVE JESUS bumper sticker. I bought it and put it on the back
bumper of my car, and I'm really glad I did. What an uplifting experience
I was stopped at the light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought
about the Lord, and didn't notice that the light had changed. That bumper
sticker really worked! I found lots of people who love Jesus. Why, the guy
behind me started to honk like crazy. He must REALLY love the lord because
pretty soon, he leaned out his window and yelled, "Jesus Christ!" as loud as
he could. It was like a football game with him shouting, "GO JESUS CHRIST,
Everyone else started honking, too, so I leaned out my window and waved
and smiled to all of those loving people. There must have been a guy from
Florida back there because I could hear him yelling something about a sunny
beach, and saw him waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck
up in the air. I asked my two kids what that meant. They kind of squirmed,
looked at each other, giggled and told me that it was the Hawaiian good luck
sign. So, I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back.
Several cars behind, a very nice black man stepped out of his car and
yelled something. I couldn't hear him very well, but it sounded like,
"Mother trucker," or "Mother's from there." Maybe he was from Florida, too.
He must really love the lord. A couple of the people were so caught up in
the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and were walking
toward me. I bet they wanted to pray, but just then I noticed that the
light had changed, and stepped on the gas. And a good thing I did, because
I was the only driver to get across the intersection. I looked back at them
standing there. I leaned way out the window, gave them a big smile and held
up the Hawaiian good luck sign, as I drove away.
Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
