I got the ultimate HFL experience - today! What a great test of what HFL is all about.
There I was on the sidewalk outside PP. My Friday sign partner was unable to make it and our big posters were in the back of his truck.
All I had was a batch of bumper stickers - So, I'm holding up my 13" x 4.5" bumper sticker and waving to the motorists passing by.
I was amazed that folks could read Honk for Life and I was getting a lot of happy honks. So, I was having a blessed time.
Suddenly, I spotted a couple of women approaching from the direction of the PP facility. I braced myself for a lecture!
Before I had a chance to say Honk, the ring-leader ask me where all the other folks were that she'd expect to see out protesting PP with me.
And in a chorus of greetings the five others, alongside her, were smiling and laughing and thanking me for supporting Life. Whoa!
Turns out they belong to ministry in Ohio, about 700 miles away and were on a long-weekend - taking break on a sightseeing trip and spending some time getting to know one another. On their way by, they spotted me and were inspired to stop and say hello and share my company!
What a pleasant surprise and what an encouragement. Now, I'm hoping they send over the pictures they took, so I can include them in my next post. Ladies1 - if you are out there and reading this - please send photos soon!
And, thanks for stopping - you made my day - and more!
