People Flocking To See Glowing Cross In Bathroom Window
<snip>

In a window in a simple bathroom in a modest house in the Kelleyland subdivision, the image of an illuminated cross has captured the attention, not only of the homeowners, but residents throughout the city.

For the Cross family, the mysterious image of a cross, which appears in their frosted-glass bathroom window, is a good omen that God is watching over them.

Some see one cross. Others see many. Some see images of a crown of thorns or an angel. Everyone seems to interpret the image differently.

If you visit Shirley Cross' house at 1804 Dublin Road, preferably after 8:30 p.m., chances are you'll see neighbors directing traffic and throngs of people waiting to stand in the Cross' family bathtub to see the glowing image.

2. "Cross" much more impressive than "random blob"
Though not as accurate.

3. No doubt because they tired of the Reagan Died-athon.
I've been trying to decide which of my feet is flatter. No crowd here yet. I guess I'll check the bathroom window. :)

10. Much like Reagan mourners they are in THONGS
chances are you'll see neighbors directing traffic and thongs of people waiting to stand in the Cross' family bathtub to see the glowing image.

4. That's stretching it....


I could claim many corners and windows of my house as crosses if I wanted to.

7. I See Burglar Bars
<snip>

"It was so amazing," Sampson said of the image, "so breathtaking."

Sampson added that she tried to get her Catholic priest to view the cross three times and was rejected each time.

Zelma Seals McCoy said prior to entering the bathroom that she had not seen the cross, but could "feel it."

Once in the bathroom, McCoy could be heard saying, "I see the thorns. I see the thorns."

<snip>

Gah. Just shoot me. Shoot me now. :argh:

13. So I guess they won't be washing that window now. Could get pretty gross
after a while. Bathroom mold and mildew.
