During my holidays in august, I spent three days in a small village called Taizé, not far from my parents' farm. This is not only a village, but also a place to rest and pray. Not a sacred place, but somewhere you can go to take a break with habits, leave stressed life behind, all problems... Leave it for a while, and focus on your relationship to God.
I always felt good in this place. I already came several times, but it was for only one day, each time. This year I spent three whole days there, and it made a real difference; I could appreciate even more the break with my everyday life... With exam to prepare, stress at work... The calm of the church gave me what I needed to balance.
Pray. Sing. Repeat. Sing again. Silence. Feel God so close in this silence. Ask the good questions. Let the answers come. Slowly. Finally understand. And sing again. Going out of the church, have a look at the watch and realize that I stayed there during more than two hours... as it seemed like a few minutes.
And last but not least... Got a new cross-bird !
