Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography





“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

Matthew 7:13, 14

Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you’re riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!

Bob Marley

Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous;

you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.

Margaret Thatcher


Another great photo challenge sponsored by Jakesprinter.  Why not join the fun or see other entries at Sunday Post: Road challenge.

I took the above photos while traveling through the country roads in Pennsylvania and Ohio. I hope you enjoyed them.
