Man sees Jesus in tree limb

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- A North Carolina man said he discovered an image of Jesus on a fallen limb from a cherry tree in his yard.

Bill Johnson of Winston-Salem said the limb fell about 10 days ago and his landlord cut it into smaller pieces and stacked them next to a tree. He said he noticed the fragment bearing the purported image of Jesus Christ while he was walking his dog, the Winston-Salem Journal reported Monday.

"I happened to look down there and I said, 'That looks like Jesus,'" he said. "It just amazed me."

Johnson said one end of the log bears an image of a robed Jesus outstretching his hand and the head is near the center, giving the appearance of a halo. He said his wife took a look at the image and came to the same conclusion, adding that the other end of the log bears an image resembling a baby in a crib, also with a halo.

Johnson said he plans to keep the limb.
