Texas Couple Say "Holy Egg" Came To Them
"There's a different type of story out of Burleson this holiday season. A couple in the city, 13 miles south of Fort Worth, believes God has given them a divine sign and it's a message spelled out in the most unusual of places.
Tracy and Pam Norrell are calling it a miracle, a gift laid before them on their small farm.
Tracy went to gather the eggs from the chicken coop Monday night, as he does every day. But this time one egg in particular caught his eye.
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."
