It's Sunday today.
Day of rest.
Your family went for the morning mass.
Whilst waiting for Dad to get the car, we were at the porch.
Your aunts, Baby Megan, Justine and Mom.
It could have been more than 5 minutes, before Mom noticed a car driving past us, and leaving the condo exit. It was the registration plate that brought a big smile to her face.
Say no more.
ZAP ZAP ZAP.
Your song ... and the way You used to sing it, instantly came to mind.
There's only 1 way, 2 say ...
those 3 words, 4 you-uuu ...
I Love You ... <3
The time was 8:26 am.
Pause to decode.
Ah, a little tricky this one.
Eight two, is six ... six six ... twelve ...
Secret code : 21
How could her zaps not be perfect?
Perfect ... every -- single -- time.
After mass, we went to an Indian restaurant nearby, for roti canai and tosai.
Oh, and don't forget the freshly-made nasi lemak bungkus. :D
Megan finished one whole roti canai. Believe it or not.
So anyway, after breakfast, we drove back to the condo.
Reaching Taman Desa, Aunty D asked, "Eh, yall need to get anything from Sri Kota?"
Mom replied, "We can go, if you need to get something ..."
Aunty D said, "Yeah, need to get toilet paper ..."
So Dad took a detour, and drove us to the grocery store.
At the store, Mom got down with Aunty D.
Aunty D did not want Megan to follow us and asked Megan to stay in the car, but the babe started to whine a little at first ... which led to a full-blown wail.
Take Megan, Ma ...
Mom carried Megan out of the car.
Megan stopped crying immediately.
At the store, Aunty D got her toilet tissue and paper tissue, and instant noodles, before going to the payment counter. Mom went to get a carton of milk. When your mother returned to the cashier, she saw Aunty D talking to a lady.
It was a lady from Grandma's church. Aunty J's (your aunt in USA) Godmother.
The lady asked Aunty D, "Where are you staying?"
Aunty D said, "Same condo as my mother ..."
to which the lady replied, "Oh, my nephew also lives there ..."
Mom asked, "Who's your nephew?" like as if she knew everyone who lives at our condo, which is so far from the truth, that the truth is a ... a ... microscopic dot from where we were um, standing.
The lady said, "Daniel boy ..."
Aunty D and Mom immediately turned to each other with that "OMG" look.
"Daniel boy???" we echoed together.
The lady laughed and repeated, "No, no, Daniel Moy ..." (or Moey)
"Oh, he's my sister's friend ..." Aunty D said.
My sister being Aunt Tracy, who is with You in heaven.
We were ready to go.
The lady asked, as she gently touched Megan's hand, "What's her name?"
Aunty D said, "Megan ..."
Aunty D repeated, "Megan ..."
The lady gave a wide-eyes and jaw-dropping surprised look before exclaiming, "That's the same name as Daniel's daughter ... Daniel's girl is also Megan ..."
Wait a minute ...
Do your math, Ma ... :D
Your mother's brains started working at top speed.
We said our goodbyes.
Mom couldn't wait to tell Aunty D, "Omg ... Do you know what the message is? The message to us is that Daniel and Megan has a connection ..."
Aunty D chuckled and agreed wholeheartedly, "Yes, yes, Daniel and Megan has a connection."
In the car, we related the inciDAN to the rest.
Aunty D said in humour, "Daniel must be so frustrated, like, why you guys still don't get it?"
Mom continued, "It makes sense ... the past 2 inciDANS ..."
Aunty D confirmed, "Yes, yes ..."
Now please take a seat, and let Mom tell You about the 2 inciDANS ...
InciDAN #1 : Thursday, Nov 7
On Thursday evening, Grandma sent a text to the family to say that she had cooked curry mee for dinner.
After school Mom went to Grandma's house.
Aunty C and Aunty D came shortly after.
Whilst we were enjoying Grandma's delicious curry noodles, Aunty D related, "Eh, that day on ALL SOULS' DAY, Megan kept saying Daniel's name ..."
Aunty C added, "When we were at the fountain (waiting for Dad and Mom to go to the garden) (Dad and Mom had gone to school to get the camera at the time) Megan kept talking to -- no one ..."
Aunty D continued, "We were in the car ... Chris (Megan's dad) was pumping petrol ... and Megan just kept saying his name ... Daniel ... Daniel ... Daniel ... eh, after that day, she didn't say it anymore ... she only said his name on ALL SOULS' DAY ..."
Well well well ... what d'ya know ???
After dinner, Aunty D called Megan over to the table, carried her onto her lap and asked casually, "Megan, where is Daniel? Is Daniel here? Where is he?"
Without hesitation or prompting, Megan turned around, and pointed to the empty space leading towards the entrance (of the condo door).
Mom watched silently.
Aunty D said, "Oh, Daniel is there? Who is Daniel with?"
Get ready for this.
The 2 year old babe replied simply, "Mother Mary."
Of course, Daniel is with Mother Mary. Mother Mary and Daniel has a very special connection ever since that 25 days he spent in Lourdes before he left us 4 months later.
Mom did not question Megan or say anything.
She did not want to -- spoil -- the moment.
She was just very -- happy.
It was just so reassuring to hear that :
Daniel is with Mother Mary.
Jesus must love You very much, Daniel, to put You under His mother's love and care, and allowing You to tell your family that. Grandma, Aunty C, Aunty D and Mom were at the dining table at the time.
The question is not whether to believe the 2 year old babe. In fact, it's so much easier not to believe the child, but You know what, Mom is not gonna take the easy way. That sentence was made ... and for a reason.
Oh, just think about it.
What are the chances of Megan saying "Mother Mary"?
No chance. She could have said elephant or flower or helicopter or spider or apple or chocolate or even roti canai ... but Mother Mary???
Not only that, but did You notice how Aunty D just -- knew -- to ask the right question, Who is Daniel with? Just like the grocer inciDAN today, Aunty D was the one who suggested we go to the grocer. You must have whispered to your aunt.
God's mystery continues.
A message for Mom ...
Thank you, Mother Mary ... from a mother to a Mother.
That evening, Mom was on the sofa -- stretching her tired feet.
The television was on.
She was casually watching as she continued her stretches.
Suddenly, she caught sight of the name DANIEL TRULY on the screen.
The time was 9:58 pm.
Decode : 4
Ahah! Her angel number.
Now why was she not surprised?
Mom said aloud (Dad was at the computer), "Daniel Truly ... It is truly Daniel ... Truly, it is him ... He's telling me that ..." :D
The show was Law & Order (Special Victims Unit).
A quick search on the net showed that Daniel Truly is the producer and writer of the episodes of this show. Strange, she has watched this show before from time to time, but has never been zapped by the name until right -- then.
Truly, timing is everything.
ZAP ZAP ZAP.
It's truly me, Ma ... :D
It's just wonderful how You are able to make your presence felt to your family especially Mom, on an all-the-time basis.
It's just TRULY amazing!
InciDAN #2 : Saturday, November 9
On Saturday morning, Aunty C sent a text to the family to say that Grandma has cooked char kuey teow in the morning, so come over for breakfast.
(Oh Wow, Daniel ... at this point of writing, Mom googled an image for char kuey teow, and of course, hundreds of images popped up. Mom scrolled down until she saw this image -- it must be the plate that caught her eye. The image brought her to a blog called The Joy of Motherhood. One thing led to another, and Mom found out that this lady is blogging about her two children, her daughter Ashlynn and son, Daniel. The father's name is Justin. Good Lord, what are the chances? Ash too has a meaning for us, since you have returned to --- ash. We all will be. We soon will be. From ash to ash. Don't know what the writer's name is though.
It was this title that caught your mother's attention ...
Flashback : Daniel, Jesus is carrying You home ...
Then, this photo appeared before her eyes as she scrolled further down ...
Precious gift from above ...
Dear Lord, thank You for choosing Daniel's Dad and Mom, as his temporary parents on earth, as we helped to prepare him for a bigger purpose for You in accordance to your Master Plan ... whatever that is.
Yes, Daniel and his sister, Justine, are two very precious gifts from Jesus above.
This unexpected discovery of this page / blog is definitely meant for Mom.
A gentle reminder ...
This page further down the blog, jumped up and zapped Mom ...
Mama ... Daniel Boy ...
Mama as in Mama Mary??? This is how You call Mother Mary ...
What are the chances??? Seriously, what are the chances for Mom to see these words, just as she had just talked to You about it in her earlier paragraph???
You really are connecting with her, aren't You, Daniel???
You really do know that Mom's communicating with You, don't You???
Who would have thought that a google search of the word char kuey teow could bring her to that ZAP. There are so many images of char kuey teow and yet, the very first one that your mother clicked on, is the one that brought her to this blog that zapped!
Meant to be ... She was meant to stumble upon that blog ...
Truly, everywhere we are, there You'll be ...
For always ...
Where was she ...
Oh okay ... so Mom did not go immediately to Grandma's place. She told Aunty C that she would go later ... because Dad had prepared a western breakfast of scrambled eggs and beans, ham on buttered toast ... and oh, can You not smell the aroma of coffee beans?
Aunty D sent a text to say that she would bring over a tupperware of the char kuey teow. it's hot and very delicious --- with sambal belacan to die for.
So, shortly after, the door bell rang.
Mom was smiling as she ran to answer the door.
Aunty D, baby Megan and the maid was at the door.
They came in.
Aunty D presented a food container and announced, "Enough for one person only ..." :D
Dad was busy scrambling eggs in the kitchen at that moment.
Aunty D and Mom were soon chatting about this and thats on the dining table, as Mom was stuffing her face with Grandma's fried rice noodle ... until Megan interrupted us.
We turned to look at her.
Would You believe it but Megan was holding and showing us your photo (that she had taken from the lower cabinet that holds our family photo frames and stuffs). Megan could have taken any photo, but she took yours.
At the same time, Aunty D exclaimed, "Eh, Megan is wearing Daniel's rosary ... she took it by herself ..."
Ah yes, lo and behold ... the two year old child had somehow picked up your rosary and put over her neck like a necklace, and showing us your photo with a cry of attention that sounded like "eh eh eh ..."
Gosh, that was You, reminding us that You were with us.
Megan then disappeared into the kitchen to try Dad's scrambled eggs.Dad called out from the kitchen and said that Megan really liked the eggs.
So anyway, shortly after that ... the babe came to the dining table again, and this time, she picked up a second of photo of yours ... to flash it to Aunty D and Mom.
"Eh eh eh ..." Megan cried for attention again.
Two times the babe got our attention with your photo.
Take note, Ma ... :D
Mom reacted in amusement, "Oh wow. She's telling us that Daniel is with Mother Mary. Her action is consistent with the other day's. You see ... she's walking around with his rosary and showing off his photo ... and that day, when you asked her Daniel is with whom, she said Mother Mary ... "
Truly OMG ...
Aunty D chuckled, "Yeah yeah, her action is really consistent ..."
Really and TRULY ...
The message is consistent.
It is not a different message.
The message is the same.
Can You not see that?
Daniel is with Mother Mary.
Plain and simple.
A smile spread across your mother's face.
Was that really really really You, Daniel? her heart whispered hopefully.
It's just too good to be true ...
Ah yes, yes ... that's a whole new chapter by itself ... Too Good To Be True ... now is that a good reason for not believing?
She rests her case.
Oh another thing ... which Mom scribbed down on her memo ... on Wednesday November 6, Mom was in the car. Dad was driving. We were going to the bookstore. Mom needed to get some "eyes" for craft.
We had driven out of the condo, when Mom reached over to the radio to change the station.
Would You believe it but the new station greeted her with 21 GUNS which started about like 3 seconds later. Omg ...
Dad didn't hear the end of that one. :D
"How would I know how and when to change the station? It's right on time. We didn't hear the last song and the next song has not started. The pause and the silence was there for like 2, 3 seconds and then 21 GUNS ... OMG ... Is my son not whispering to me? I called him yesterday and told him all about the ALL SOULS' zaps. Omg, he's responding to me etc etc etc ..."
Truly, for sure ...
See Call 503 : All Souls and Call 504 : Tiny Bubbles
So now, after hearing those inciDANS this past week, wouldn't You say that the lady at the grocer was telling us something?
Awesome Daniel ...
Truly Daniel, awesome ...
Keep the zaps coming, Son.
Gotta go get some dinner now. :D
