    Jacob had a dream, sent to him by God. When he awoke he knew God had sent him the dream so he set up his 'pillow' as an altar and anointed it with oil. And thru the yrs. other Israelites passing that way used the altar for prayer to bless their journey or their camp there, or for healing or for whatever.

    Genesis 28 is the perfect medicine for anxiety and worry. Ive seen and been through much but he's always been there. Even when Ive turned away...he's always been there talking to me and protecting me. How much so can I truly rest for the rest of my life knowing he's been with me all this time? I rest fully in him..
