(WMC-TV) - A Mid-South family says an image of Jesus formed on a freshly painted wall of their house.

Wendy Brady's specialty is finishing walls with a technique she calls Mississippi Mud.

"I've been doing this for many years," she said Friday

Baker has a keen eye for interior design, but she wasn't expecting to see an image of Jesus after she finished the foyer at her friend's home in Horn Lake.

"To my amazement and joy and surprise, that is what showed up," she said.

Homeowner Ruth Mersenski and her daughter Sandra recognized the familiar face of Jesus after Baker wiped a colored glaze from the textured compound.

"It's as if the image of Jesus is keeping watch over their front door.," Baker said.

A holy home improvement that Baker says was unintentional, and would impossible to recreate.

"I'm just the vessel, so what it's meant to me is the joy that it has brought other people," she said.

Mersenski and her daughter were hesitant to go public with their story - one they've heard before.

"The cheese toast, the potato chips, but if you look at them long enough you can do it," she said.

"You don't have to guess when you see it. You know what you're looking a."

But they consider it a blessing worth sharing with the world.

"I'm sure that it has some purpose, and we have yet to do is find out what that purpose is," Mersenski said.

Merinos says a lot of people have already been to her home to see the image, and she is prepared to host others who are interested.
