I remember in third grade, We were doing stations of the cross. There were three people standing next to the image holding either a cross, candel, or a picture of Jesus. I was holding a picture of Jesus. I remember my arms were getting really tired, but then I remembered how tired Jesus was on Calvary. I still kept on holding the picture higher and higher. In most pictures, Jesus isn't smiling at you, but when stations were over, The picture of Jesus that i have seen over and over again finally started to smile at me. I think it wasw kinda weird, but now even to this day, I see him smile at me. I ask people if they see what I see and they say no.
