Stopping at a Green Light Can Be A Holy Experience
The other day I went to my local religious bookstore where I saw one of those HONK IF YOU LOVE JESUS bumper stickers. I bought it and right away put it on the back of my car, and I’m so glad I did. What an uplifting experience followed!
It all started when I was stopped at a light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord, and didn’t notice that the light had changed.
The bumper sticker really worked! I found lots and lots of people who must really love the Lord, because pretty soon he leaned out the window and yelled “Jesus Christ” as loud as he could. It was like a football game, him shouting and all of that. I could just picture him yellin “Go, Jesus, go!”
And everybody else started honking, too. So, I leaned out the window, like lots of them were doing, and waved and smiled at all those loving people. There must have been a guy from Florida there, because I could hear him yellin something about a sunny beach, and saw him waving a funny way with only his middle finger in the air.
I asked my kids what that might be. They kinds skirmed a little, looked at each other, giggled and told me that that was the Hawaian good luck sign.
Several cars behind me, a very nice man stepped out of his car and yelled something. I couldn’t hear him very well but it sounded like “Mother Tucker” or somethin. Obviously, he really loved the Lord, too.
And then some people got so caught up in the joy of the moment that the got out of there cars and started walking toward me. I figured they wanted to pray, but just then the light changed so I stepped on the gas. And a good thing I did, `cause I was the only driver to get across the intersection.
I looked back at them standing there. I leaned out the window, gave them a big godly smile and held up the Hawaian good luck sign as I drove away.
I say praise the Lord for such wonderful folks. . . .
Truly, it is a devout community and it’s a wonderous thing that such outpouring of piety can be obtained for the modest price of a bumper sticker.
