Chef finds heavenly inspiration after making rare find in eggplant

BATON ROUGE, La. –  A cook in Louisiana says he was on the receiving end of some heavenly encouragement in the form of an eggplant.

“Everbody’s been like, ‘Wow,” said Jemarcus Brady.

Brady was working as a cook at Gino’s Italian Family Restaurant when he noticed something extraordinary.

“When you sliced into it, the pattern showed from the seeds that were forming in the inside the letters G-O-D as God. I couldn’t think of anything. I just had to tell somebody to come look at it,” said Brady.

He’s no stranger to life’s struggles and says the message didn’t go unnoticed.

He raised four children on a limited income before becoming a cook and it was his faith that got him through the tough times.

“Through the whole road, he’s showing me that ‘Hey, I’m real’ and that’s the only thing you can depend on,” said Brady.

“You could cut a million eggplants and you’d probably never see that again, it’s that rare. God is within us and he has different ways of showing it within our lives and this is maybe one of ‘em,” said Gino Marino, the co-owner of Gino’s Restaurant.

Brady says he doesn’t really care if other people believe in divine intervention or not.

“I don’t know what it means. All I know, it just tells me that ‘Hey, he’s real and nothing else can change my mind about that,” said Brady.
