A quick blog before i go to bed. I had a really strange encounter today ! We went to Maxwell Market for lunch after church. A minute after I have sat down at one of the tables, the cleaning lady came and start clearing the dirty plates away, and while she was cleaning the table… the following conversation took place…
Cleaning Lady: Are you a Singaporean?
Me: Yes….? (in my mind- why are you asking??)
Cleaning Lady: Are you a Christian?
Cleaning Lady: If you have the chance to go to Australia, you must go there and stay.
Me: err..huh…ok… ( in my mind -I was like what !?! can you say that again?! is God speaking to me??!!)
Cleaning Lady: I have a dream a few years ago, God showed me about Australia…Australia is a a good place to stay… blah blah..
Me: If you have the opportunity will you go to Australia to stay?
Cleaning Lady: Yes I will
Me: How will you be able to migrate there?
Cleaning Lady: My son.. i will follow him..Which church are you from?
Me: CNL- under AOG. Which church are you from?
Cleaning Lady: Victory Family Centre
I was really surprised that she is from VFC !!! then..blah… blah.. after she has finished cleaning the table.. i say thanks and she walked away.
I was totally surprised and can’t really get over what she has told me about Australia out of the blue !!!
man, does this kind of thing happen very often, if it doesn’t, is it a coincidence, can it be such a coincidence ?? And the very weird thing is I have been telling desmond a few times over the past 1-2 months that I don’t want to move to aus.
I used to want to stay in aus very much, but that was after i had just finished my studies in perth in 1998. now after 8 years and with two kids, i don’t really want to move anymore.
But Desmond still wants to move back there one day, so i’ve prayed about this before, whether to move or to stay in singapore and I wanted a very clear answer, i don’t want to move just because the air is cleaner, or the life there is better blah blah… i want to move only if God wants me to move there. So since God has not really spoken or put a strong desire in me to move, i’ve decided myself that i don’t want to move because starting all over again in a new place, building life and friendships can be hard especially with kids.
But now… after today… mm.. i can’t explain…
