Chapter 7, Page 29, Book 13




Look at life through the windshield,
not the rear-view mirror.

Byrd Baggett

Sometimes when things get tough, we get caught up in how great the past was and we take our focus off the now and what’s right in front of us.

I've seen it happen too many times.  People do get caught up in the past and forget to enjoy what is in the present.

When we live through the windshield  we understand that whats in front of us is most important, our quality of life expands and helps us live more fulfilled, passionate lives.   We need to make sure that our past does not limit us in what God has for us ahead.

Don’t let your rearview mirror be bigger than your windshield.

It’s not easy to keep looking ahead and sometimes it’s scary to wonder where the road will end. But it’s still better to keep looking through the windshield than to live regretting what you can never go back to


Let your eyes look directly ahead, and let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you.

Proverbs 4:25

I LOVE the expression sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It suits my life.

I think that is true - we have to look ahead and no back. It is hard sometimes. Sandie
