The chilling wind is gone, flowers start to bloom and trees turn a shade of green, pink, or yellow. Slippers and sneakers instead of boots. People sitting in the park for one whole hour or two. Time to stroll around the city that is.
That’s spring in Prague.
Although it feels as hot as a summer sometimes, and it might be moody ,rainy and chilly for a change just when you start hiding all your jackets.
Nevertheless, the windless and cloudy weather that day didn’t stop me from bringing my camera for a walk.
And then I decided to have a cappuccino in a quiet cafe…
… and pop in to a Tesco express.
We shouldn’t only persevere because there’s hope, sometimes there’s hope because we press on. Sunflowers always face the sun, and still do so during a moody rainy day, when the sun is not visible in the sky, for there’s a glimmer of hope that it will emerge, if only they persevere.
Pursue that “sun” in our hearts, held our heads up high and keep pressing on. It can’t hide behind the clouds forever.
The antiques always remind me of how things have changed… there’s always this kind of nostalgic beauty about them. People grew old, people left, but they stay quietly in some corners in this world, being part of a story that might never be retold.
My prayer is for a burdened heart today. Lord, please stretch your healing hands upon your faithful servants.
… adding life to the many thousands words and facts to be read and memorized!
Taking a tram, an almost everyday-life activity here in Prague. It really is rather relaxing when you could sit on an empty (or less crowded than it usually is) tram in a rainy moody day, just taking in the beautiful scenery of this old city that passes by.
This photo was shot when I was having a walk in one of the many Easter markets in Prague. Just like Christmas markets, people set up stalls on squares all around the city, selling traditional food and items. I’m surprised that after 4 years living in here, this was the first time I noticed that the they hang ribbons of different colours on birch tree twigs and rooftops of their stalls during Easter!
Stars will fade and mountains fall;
Christ will shine forever,
Love’s unfading splendour.
Earth and heaven will bow in awe,
Joining in salvation’s song.

Happy blessed Easter!
