Man sees Jesus image in his rocking chair

Feb. 23, 2011 at 3:30 AM

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A California man said he was planning to throw away his wooden rocking chair until he noticed an image of Jesus Christ in the flaking paint and rotted wood.

Lou Balducci of Mission Viejo sent pictures to KNBC-TV, Los Angeles, of the image he and members of his family believe to resemble Jesus.

"Last week, I noticed this image of Jesus on the chair. I don't know how it got there, but it is clearly an image of Jesus," Balducci said in e-mail to KNBC.

Balducci said he is not "overly religious," but his religious in-laws and his housekeeper believe the image to be a message from above.

"We showed it to our housekeeper and she said it was a sign that our house and our family was being blessed ... My in-laws are very religious and also believe that it is a blessing," Balducci said.

He said he has not yet decided what to do with the chair, which he had for more than 10 years before spotting the image.

"I am not sure what I want to do with it. Right now, I am enjoying having it in my home and showing it to friends and family," Balducci said.
