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 followed. 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,GO!!!" 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
gave them a big smile and held up the Hawaiian good luck sign, as I drove
away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
