...when you don't want a lot of Christmas presents because you don't want to have to get rid of a lot of stuff if you enter.

 

Me, this year. I asked for an apron and a brown scapular. :smile3:

 

...if you get irritated when people react to, "I'm discerning!" as though you said, "I'm expecting!" and once you clarify, they act all disappointed. (Yes, pholks, this has happened to me. 16, no boyfriend..."You're expecting?!") :annoyed: 

 

...when you get mail from your sisters, do a happy dance in the yard thus causing the neighbors to stare at you, and don't care a bit.

...if having to select lay clothes every day is seriously penitential. (The habit in my past is one of the best gifts I ever received. I can't help but wonder if there mightn't still be one in my fut

When you finally tell your brothers in your community that you're going to be entering, and they're leaping with joy, and can't contain themselves in telling you that they've felt this for a long time

...when you look forward to getting newsletters from the DSMMEs and Nashville Dominicans even though you are not discerning with those communities.

 

...when you have such a deep love for Mary that you cry while reading about the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, and the Presentation.  :)

When the only things hanging the walls in your room are icons or crucifixes. When you have a prayer shelf or two (mine are the top shelves of my two bookshelves in my room). When your favorite things that you own are either relics (second class of Solanus Casey and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta!) or icons (Our Lady of Guadalupe from Guadalupe Mexico!). When you can't stop smiling because you are soooooo at peace because you finally decided to start discerning with A community instead of discerning communities! :woot: :dance2: :)

When, on your entrance day, the Lord proclaims in the Mass readings, "Go up on to a high mountain, Zion!," "Adore the LORD in holy attire," and "Beloved:

The grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope the appearance of the glory of our great God and savior Jesus Christ."

When you receive a personal Christmas card from the monastery's Prioress and community, and besides almost crying, you instantly think of it as a gift from "your sisters". 

 

When talking or thinking about your discernment just fills you with peace.

-when someone who never met you saw a picture of you and said that you look like a religious person

-when you think that if you will never become a nun you would like to have many children, especially boys, in order to offer them to God
