I have to laugh!
Remember how I felt God calling me to the religious life or considering perhaps maybe? Well, I have been thinking about this since around the middle of February of this year. I was afraid to even tell my parents about it because I didn’t know how they would react to it. So about a month ago or so I prayed that IF I was being called that my parents would understand or they would even think about it for me as well.
Well, last night I was heading for the bathroom to brush my teeth in my apartment when the phone rang and ya know, it was around 9:30pm…unusual time for calls. I answered it and it was my mom and the first thing she said after I said “hello” was, “Would you ever be a nun?” My jaw dropped and I didn’t know what to say! I just muttered, “Um…yeah, sure, why not?” I think she said, “Well, would you?” I told her that I was considering it, relaxing that my mom knew it was maybe a good idea! Whew! See? Somehow, God heard my prayers!!
I kinda laughed and asked her what made her think of this? She just said something like ,“oh, I was watching something on TV and there happened to be a convent and I thought of you if you would be one”. My I was soooooo surprised that she even said something like that!
And to make things more interesting, there is a convent I think on the EXACT same road I live on!
What do you guys think? Is that coincidence or what?
