As a child growing up -  I / we dream a lot.   ex. in school -  graduation, career, marriage, family, retire.

As we age - replace dreaming with memories  -  dream less if at all -  let alone dream about eternity.

Genesis  50
19And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?

 20But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

 21Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.

 22And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived an hundred and ten years.

 23And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.

 24And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

 25And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.

 26So Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt

Dream the Dream -  In Color  -  

Matthew 26

26And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

 27And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

 28For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

 29But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

 By Age -  one side -  that/those shared Christ to you        other side -  that/those  you shared Christ with   -   By Age.
