The Winking Rock

One night, around ten o’clock, I was sitting on the back porch smoking a cigarette talking to God.  While I was talking to Him, a movement in front and to the left caught my eye.   Look at the rock.Rock 1

The farthest hole, the one that is a brownish-yellow color (added that for the picture), shook rapidly and then stopped, like a leaf does when the wind blows it.  It did it twice.  There had been a slight breeze, but not enough to even blow the grass.

It appeared that the rock was winking at me.  So I asked God if that was him or a leaf, and He did not answer my question.

The next morning, while I was having a cigarette, I looked at the rock and the leaf was no longer there, I figured the wind blew it away.

That night, again while I was smoking a cigarette, I looked at the rock and the leaf was back.  This surprised me, so I got up to examine it, and there was no leaf.  The hole goes all the way through.  The light from the porch made it appear as though a leaf was in it. 

Therefore I believe that it had been God talking to me since nobody else could make light shake.  Aside from that, the things that I thought He said to me were proven to be true.
