Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



Some of the best friendships can be formed as a young child and last a lifetime.  The Daily Post at has us thinking and exploring the concept of friendships.   I shot this photo of family and friends bonding together in celebration of a family wedding.


Faithful Friends are a Rare Treasure

Proverbs 18:24
There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. (NLT) 

True Friends Strengthen and Help Each Other

Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. (NLT)
