to Betsy! When you're spreading God's word, it's important to
pay attention to commas and spelling and proper phrasing. If
you don't, you may end up saying something other than what you
really intended. And sometimes the result can be scandalous--or
just funny as all get out.

Letter from Grandma (Humor)
For everyone who's ever had a Grandma....
Got a letter from Grandma the other day. She writes.....
The 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
thunderous prayer meeting, so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.
Boy, I'm 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!
Why, 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!
Jesus Christ, 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 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. Then I asked my teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said
that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I've never
met anyone from Hawaii, 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 intersection.
I noticed 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 them after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down,
leaned out of window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last
time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!
