Jesus image spotted in Central Texas moth

Jesus Christ seen in moth
A Texas family spotted the image of Jesus in a moth that visited their home.

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) – A Georgetown woman says a moth that showed up at her home with a pattern that resembles the face of Jesus is a sign from above.

Yvonne Esquilin tells KXAN the moth showed up at her home just after noon Wednesday. At first, her family thought it was a butterfly. It stuck around until she got home from work and saw it for herself.

“We were just amazed at the size of the moth,” she told KXAN. “It didn’t dawn on me until I snapped the picture. At first it looked like Jesus- and I still think it looks like Jesus.”

Esquilin says she has been praying for signs of hope that she would find a way to help her daughter continue pursuing her degree.

“I believe this was a sign,” she said. “God is letting me know Good News is Coming and to keep the Hope.”

The family looked into the significance of moths colors and learned yellow means hope and brown means important news. They’ve shared the image on social media asking others what they make of the large insect.

“People also saw an image of the Devil which is kind of creepy but after staring at it for so long it almost looks like it,” she said.

The moth spent the night at the family’s home before flying away around 7:15 this morning.
