Every individual finds hope in his/her own way. Hope can come in varied forms. From some unlikely occurrence, from someone beloved, from something as simple as a smile on a child’s face. But I think most of the times for all the people who are remotely religious hope comes from prayer, irrespective of what God they believe in. I visited Dresden in Germany a few months back and there in the center of the city stood this huge church called Frauen Kirche (The Church of our Lady) and I think the picture I clicked there would be perfect for this week’s challenge.

    What a lovely picture! Nice colors and really interesting angle. You can almost see prayers flying to heaven and filling the sky with hope.. at least that’s what I thought after reading your text and watching the photo 🙂

    Beautiful. Amazing that it’s still there after the bombing. That symolises hope in itself.

    Beautiful! Amazing that it is still there, after all the bombing. That symbolises hope in iteself.
    Wordpress doesn’t usually let me leave comments, so I might have to do this via facebook!

      Hi Lorely,
      Whats surprising is that this structure could not withstand the bombing. But the people of this town were very hopeful and they rebuilt the whole structure in its original glory!
      Thank you so much for stopping by, I really like your blog too!
