i dreamed of becoming a nun when i was 7 - 16. I wanna serve the Lord, I was the naive and shy type of girl. After college one of my friend; a nun approached me, she asked if if i wanna enter the convent and I said sure, bt im gonna think about it first. It was the time when I met a woman who really intrigues me. She's the exact opposite of me we became bestfriends. One morning I she told me that she's inlove with me, was shocked i havent thought that she's a lesbian coz she's the girlie-type. The irony is instead of walking away from her i told her that im also inlove with her.. lol. NOw i jst dont wanna be a nun, not because i dont wana serve my Lord or anythin. I Jst hope God will understand me :P TC!

God is more understanding than alot of his followers give him credit for. Really, if you are meant to be in a religious order, you'll know it. The older I get, the more I believe that God does speak to people but not in the fire and brimstone way. I think its a case of he allows you to know that a particular situation feels right and you just do it.

Funnily enough, and you could say this has something with me being Chinese, but used to have this fantasy of myself as being like a member of rogue monastic sect that was devoted to having some sort of special power or skill and I'd go round the world righting wrongs. Always been facinated by religious orders. Liked looking at Priest in their full uniform do their rituals and get on with life. Always seemed to be quite a facinating world to live in and God Willing, who knows where I might end up one day

I have to say that this one thing I have never dreamed about being. I have never wanted to be a nun. I love my life the way God is working in it right now and I love my husband too much to even think of being a nun. Even when I was single all I could think about was becoming a wife and a mother. I think the Lord has a plan for everyone and mine is to be a wife.
