A couple in Burleson, 13 miles south of Fort Worth, believes they have been given a divine sign from the Heaven.
Tracy and Pam Norrell have since been calling it a Christmas miracle, a gift laid before them on their small farm.
It started just like every Monday nights when Tracy went to gather the eggs from the chicken coop. But this time one egg in particular caught his attention.
Unlike the others, this egg isn’t smooth and a very noticeable cross is indented on the top. The Norell’s say the egg was laid ‘straight from heaven’ and is a message of encouragement that comes at the right time.
“This time of the year, we get so taken up with the presents and money and we forget about the reason,” Pam explained. “I think he [God] was just telling us he is the reason for the season.”
The Norell’s haven’t quite decided what they’ll do with the egg yet. It goes without saying; the couple says eating the egg is not an option.
