台湾基督长老教会-淡水教会  圣诞夜安静严肃的做了祷告,为家人亲人的身体状况和每个人所面临的难处祷告。赶在圣诞节前把圣经的旧约终于看完了。我其实对寺庙道观的建筑,法器,檀香的味道都非常感兴趣。估计是从小西游记看多了的缘故,总是喜欢去庙里看壁画和雕刻的神神鬼鬼。每次去寺庙都有种与自己的文化的根基相连接,穿越时空的感觉。反倒是去教堂觉得那些画和使徒的形象离我的文化很远。但是我去寺庙这么多次都不会哭,只有去教堂才会。今天终于破解迷团,在寺庙里只有心的感动,比起西方的教堂,神秘的东方才是养我长大的根。而对于教堂,则是灵的感动。一个人的身心灵,心的家寄托在与自己的文化上,而灵的家真的是在信仰上。感谢姥姥从小就带我认识上帝。我在高中叛逆期时是个无神论者,并且习惯性的诋毁辱骂过上帝,听到他人赞美上帝时嗤之以鼻。之后又信奉其他的神明。去年开始才慢慢转回来。如果说我这辈子只能做一个见证,那就是证明耶稣的存在与爱。从小我就经历了太多奇妙的事情,到现在也是如此。求就得到,寻找就寻见。继续作见证人。 ...

Japanese Homework and Diary The diary 没山的地方真的很没劲。这是我的偏见,但我不会改变。 离台前争取把这套《丰子恺全集》看完。看不完文字也要把美术卷都过一遍~! Tamkung大学の図書館何回も行きました。読みたい本が多いすぎる。どうしよう!先週から一ヶ月台湾の暮らしが終わった。まだ続ける。毎日外食するけど、食べたい物やいきたいレストランがまだいっぱいある。最高! 豆腐系の物がたくさんあるし、手作りの豆腐もどこでもあります。安くてめっちゃおいしい。毎朝朝市に行って、しあわせすぎる。前知り合い人と話して 「シえさん、好きな住んでいる場所はどんな場所ですか」と言った。 「火山がある島です。暖かい天気、palm treeもあるし、美味しいものもあるし、最高の図書館もあるし。あと、うるさい都会じゃない、でも便利なところです。」「うん、それなら、便利なこと、ちょっと難しいな。」 全然難しくない。このへんは完璧な例です。 今年最後の読んでいる本は「気まずい」というテーマです。毎年、人に信頼ことができなくなりました。それは、客観的な観察をした結果です。今年日本語のレッスンの最後の宿題を付きました。今年4月から初めて真剣的に勉強している、でも、「日本が大好き」ことがだんだんできませんでした。でも、私の心の中に、日本のデイザンはまだ世界の一番だと思っている。デイザン以外、hard to say. 日本語の勉強する理由が弱くなった。 でも、日本の暮らしの経験のおかげさまで、自分の壊れた心やたましが癒しました。二年ぐらい日本に住んだら、良いことや悪いことが全部覚える。I don't forget. I don't forgive. I only accept this is what happened. 台湾にいて、めっちゃよかった。thank God.  ...
