Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


I am honored to receive the King of Kings Friendship Award given to me by Anne and Ron.  You can find there blog here:  If you are looking for encouragement, inspiration or a laugh or two, then just check them out.  You will not be disappointed.  Believe me.

Here is their word on the King of Kings Friendship Award.  We would like to offer you our Brother or Sister in The Lord… The King of Kings Friendship Award…some call it a Blessing instead of an Award, you can accept it as you feel in your heart to or not.

And if you feel you would like to pass it on to encourage others in the Body of Christ and in the Family of God..there are no rules or set requirements, you are under no obligation in any way, it’s just our way of offering thankfulness for the blessing you are by willingly choosing from the heart to walk fully in the beauty of the person God is conforming you to be by the empowering of The Holy Spirit, which is the image of His Awesome Son…

Jesus Christ whose Name is above all Names.

What Is a Friend?

“One who multiplies joys, divides grief, and whose honesty is inviolable.”

“One who understands our silence.”

“A volume of sympathy bound in cloth.”

“A watch which beats true for all time and never runs down.”

“A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.”

What a friend we have in Jesus!

“A true friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in the time of need.”  — Solomon (Proverbs 17:17)

 I believe I have met so many new friends in the blogging community and I cherish each one of you for the individuals you are and the special gift each has contributed to all of us in your unique way.

Passing Blessing On To:

Anne also passed on to me the Just Kidding Award
