Hello……???

Rrriiiiinnnnggg,
rrriiiinnnngg,

‘Hello?’

‘Hi honey. This is daddy. Is mommy near the
phone?’

‘No, daddy. She’s upstairs in the bedroom
with Uncle Gabe.’

After a brief pause, daddy says,
‘But honey, you haven’t
got an Uncle Gabe.’

‘Oh yes I do, and he’s upstairs in the room
with mommy, right now..’

Brief Pause……….

‘Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to
do. Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door
and shout to mommy that daddy’s car just pulled into the driveway.’

‘Okay, daddy, just a minute.’

A few minutes later the little girl comes back to the phone.

‘I did it, daddy.’

‘And what happened, honey?’

‘Well, mommy got all scared, jumped out of
bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug,
hit her head on the dresser and now she isn’t moving at all!’

‘Oh my God!!! What about your Uncle Gabe?’

‘He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too. He was all scared and he jumped
out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn’t know
that you took out the water last week to clean it.’

 

‘He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he’s dead.’

Long Pause………..

Longer Pause……….

Even Longer Pause………….

Then daddy says, ‘Swimming pool?’

‘Is this 486-5731?’

No, I think you have the wrong
number…….!

Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store 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, am I 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!

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! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!’

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those
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.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window
and gave him the good luck sign right 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, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on
through  the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection
before the light changed again and 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 the window and gave them all the
Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.  Praise the Lord
for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love,  Grandma
