Modern Day Miracle...

Part 3
Read Part One:  "Death Answers to God, and He Said No" 
Read Part Two:   "Memphis Miracle"

In 2005, some 17 years after the accident, Ron began often having double vision.   He went to an ophthalmologist, who informed him that he had 20/15 vision, explaining that his eyes were better than normal.  Having no explanation for the double vision, he sent Ron for an MRI. 

After the MRI was complete, the tech and Ron were looking at the results, and the tech turned to Ron with a stunned look on his face and asked if he’d ever had a head injury.   Ron told him, “Yes, some years ago.  Why?”    The tech pointed to a black spot on his X-ray and replied, “Nothing.”   Ron said, “Nothing?  Man, it looks like something!”   The tech said, “That’s what I’m telling you, it’s nothing there, because it’s nothing there!”

Ron asked, “Nothing?  Like no brain?”   The tech nodded, still looking at Ron with that stunned look.   Ron asked him what that part of the brain controlled, and the tech told him “Motoring skills.”    Ron asked, “Like moving, walking, running, jumping?”   The tech nodded, looking Ron straight in the eye in disbelief, and said “Yes.”   Ron was silent for a long moment, then he got tickled and began to laugh.  He said, “Well, now!  This is kind of crazy!   I move around pretty good now, and I don’t even have the brains to do it!”  The tech almost smiled, but his stunned, astonished look kept him from it.

Ron’s last word on this story:   "Now try to tell me God is nothing but Awesome!"


  1. Amen!! What a miracle indeed! I can't imagine the look on both the tech and Ron's face when they discovered this. It truly is amazing, but that is our God. It is a story of hope and encouragement and wonder! So did they even figure out what was causing the double vision?

    thanks for sharing this story, Meg. Did they ever consider sharing it on Guideposts?


  2. No..for a long time after the X-ray, he didn't have any more double vision at all. He says now it happens very rarely, like when he's extremely tired.

  3. :o !

    You have absolute, bonafide evidence that Ron is a walking...haha, literally...walking miracle.

    That is the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

    Thanks for sharing the story--and the film! I'm going to put thisi post on my favorites list to show my sons.


  4. Thanks for the post. I needed to read about encouragement and miracles today.

  5. So you know the Atheist(who is also a medical management consultant) is going: THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
    But can I explain it. Nope. So...
