Happened to me, ha! :hehe:

For me at least, you do not feel sad that you can't get married and have children .. because you know you ARE getting married (to the most beautiful Husband [i]ever[/i] for all eternity!! :love:) and will be having children (spiritual children) .. and you consider yourself engaged, not single.

He's also most tender, loving, and generous...[img]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/default/dance5.gif[/img] And yeah, I do consider myself taken [img]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/public/style_emoticons/default/heart.gif[/img] When I hear talks of marriage, for example when my mom mentions it, I always think to myself, I'm engaged to Someone, and He's more amazing than any husband you can imagine for your daughter.

When you start to secretly pick and write out your desired religious name (like a teenager doodling Mrs. so and so)

I was at a hospital picking up medical records wearing a black suit, white blouse, and with a crucifix on a chain. An aide in the elevator told me I looked like a "really young sister"

Edit: can't type nothing write!! Ha Ha.

This summer I started going to daily mass--I did work in a church, so why not? Some lovely middle aged man asked someone "Who is the new young nun?"

The other lady knew me, and said "What new nun?" He explained it was the tallish girl with the long hair and skirts.

"O, that's LaPetiteSoeur. She's not done with university yet!"

:nun2:

Ok, question on the "sisters" on this site. They refer to God the father as the Creator and the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of life (am I the only one who finds that weird?)

You know you are a future nun when............... tomorrow is the day of your profession :)

Joking aside, I know of a young woman (pre V2) who was happily a layperson with a career with no desire to enter religious life but began to feel that most everywhere she went she seemed to see nuns. So she decided to visit her local convent mainly out of curiousity and to educate herself about religious life........and came away, slightly in shock, with her entrance date. She has been happily professed now for well over 50 years.
The Lord can move in strange ways indeed and His Ways not ours often at all.

You know you're a future nun when....you listen to love songs on the radio..(usually happens to me during the Delilah show!) and think of Jesus :-)
