LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A Longview couple believes they have a sort of Christmas miracle outside their home. It was first noticed about 2 weeks ago at a home in the 4-hundred block of Diane street. 71 year old Gene Cameron was walking in his front yard a couple of weeks ago , when a pattern in his concrete driveway caught his eye.

"And I'm just looking around and I see this cross and it wasn't there earlier, it just showed up," says Gene.

There had been no construction in the area, no workers, no noise. The Camerons say it just appeared.

"And I was thinking its got wings it must be an angel cross," he says.

"Why all of the sudden would it show up bingo, at this time of the year, it blew me away , I come out here and I said , god's with us," says wife Moneta Cameron.

Neighbors and even city workers have been taken back by the sight.

"Looks like a cross to me" says one neighbor.

"At first I didn't know what to think I was just amazed, at the phenomenon of it, amazing that the cross appeared," says neighbor Halley Fuller.

It's had an emotional impact on the Camerons.

"It made me feel really close to god," said a tearful Moneta.

"This is a sign that he is alive and he is in our hearts," Gene says.

And it means something to everyone who's seen it.

"Its got me thinking that there is a very strong influence out there on us, all we got to do is look for it, it made me think about a lot of things , maybe I ought to straighten my act up a little bit," says Gene.

The Camerons say that anyone who wants to see the cross is welcome to come by for a look.
