We've all seen the stories: a Virgin Mary sighting in a grilled cheese sandwich, in the side of a tree, or Jesus' face on a tortilla. We guess you've never seen one like this -- inside a shower.
Richards doesn't know if it's mold or mildew or what, but she knows in her heart what she sees: a likeness of Jesus, it's presence not without meaning.
"Maybe it means something. Maybe look into yourself and see if you need to change something in your life," she said.
Neighbors have heard about it, but hadn't seen it until we showed them a picture.
"Jesus. But it kinda looks like me!" said neighbor Michael Bearden.
Still Bearden believes, even if you don't.
"One of God's mysteries," he said.
The mold started a couple of months ago while Thomas George, who also lives in the house, was in prison.
"He's just watching over us to make sure nothing wrong happens or I get in trouble and go back," George said.
