A white car was waiting, and walking over to it she would have taken a seat in the back behind the driver’s seat; she would have except for the man that opened the driver’s door and motioned for her to sit in the driver’s seat.
After closing the door he went to the rear of the car and opened the hatchback. He placed a piece of black velvet over the window of the hatchback and closed it.
Walking back to the driver’s door he raised his right hand and pointed ahead as if to say, “Don’t look behind you. Look ahead!”
Reflecting on this dream it was clear that He was saying to her, “There is nothing in your past that you can relive today. Everything alive is ahead of you.”
It is true that none of the good or the bad experiences in yesterday can be lived in today, except in the mind.
We are unable to change anything from yesterday. We may be enabled about wiser living and choices for today from yesterday’s experiences, but yesterday is gone.
In the years to come she would have many times to recall the instruction, those times when the sorrow of loss painfully presented itself again in her today.
“Don’t look back! Look ahead!” you can hear her say, and focusing ahead, she lives with promise that all she has lost of value is living just ahead in her future.
