other day I went up to a local Christian bookstore 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 wonderful prayer meeting, so I
bought the sticker and put in on my bumper.
I was stopped at a red light at a busy junction, 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. Why, while I was sitting there, the
guy behind started honking like crazy, and when he leaned out of his window
and screamed, "for the love of God, GO!GO!" What an exuberant
cheerleader he was for Jesus.
Everyone started honking! I just leaned out of my window and started waving
and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to
share in the love. There must have been a man from Ayr 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. When I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that
meant, he said that it was probably a Glesca good luck sign or something.
Well, I've never met anyone from Glesca, so I leaned out the window and gave
him the good luck sign 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, I waved to all my sisters and brothers grinning, and drove on
through the junction. I noticed I was the only car that got through the
junction before the light changed again and I 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 of the window and gave them all the Glesga good luck sign one
last time as I drove away.
the Lord for such wonderful folks!
