An amazing thing happened when I woke up Saturday morning before taking my mother to the doctors. My mother commented on the casting of shadows from tree leaves on the large window shade in the living room. She asked me if I could see faces in the shadows formed by the leaves and I continued to look until it was obvious that I saw two eyes, a nose, and a mouth....a non-distinct grouping of dot-like shadows that seemed to make up a face. All of the sudden, in the middle of the picture shade, I saw another image of leaf shadows that seemed VERY DISTINCTLY that of a profile image of Christ! I was quite shocked and amazed!. However, I had to quickly get ready to take my mother to an early morning doctor visit, so I was not able to gaze upon this amazing apparition for very long! I don't know what this image was or what it meant, I only know that the shadows of leaves on my window shade.....for a brief period of time....seemed to show an image of Christ and perhaps wanted me to know that he is watching out for me and my mother.
