Jesus has once again made an appearance and has people all atwitter. Where did he appear this time? Toast again? A tortilla perhaps? Maybe he decided once again to appear in someone’s bathroom mold to send a message (that message, one presumes, being “buy bleach”)? Nope. This time he has appeared on the wings of a moth.
Yvonne Esquilin of Georgetown, Texas spotted something incredible on the wings of a moth last week.
The yellow and brown insect flew into her home around noon on Wednesday, and stayed until Thursday morning. Esquilin believes that the unexpected visit was a sign from God, after likening the pattern on the moth’s wings to an image of Jesus.
The moth’s size and vivid colors initially caused the family to think that the insect was a butterfly. They didn’t notice the unique wing pattern until hours later.
“We were just amazed at the size of the moth,” Esquilin told KXAN. “It didn’t dawn on me until I snapped the picture.”
Esquilin had been praying for a way to continue her daughter’s education, and believes that the timing of the moth’s appearance is significant. The family also discovered that the color yellow symbolises hope, and brown represents important news.
“I believe this was a sign,” she explained. “God is letting me know good news is coming and to keep the hope.”
God is clearly behind the times. If you want to send a message these days, you text or use social media. Maybe he could have send some ASCII art that looked like Jesus. And a note of irony: You know how entomoligists store moth specimens? By pinning them to a board.
