I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

A Joke for the day:)

GRANDMA
:
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 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 the Gold Coast 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 Fijian's good luck sign or
something.

Well, I've never met anyone from Fiji, 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 the
window and gave them all the Fijian good luck sign one last time as I
drove
away.

Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!

I saw a bumper sticker one time that said: Honk if you love honking.

I didn't honk, though. I guess that means I don't love honking. :)
