After Jacob's dream, he 'continues on his journey'....somehow I imagine that he was ecstatic, probably walking with a spring in his step and even dancing at times!
He'd had an encounter with God. He had this dream to remember and strengthen his faith.
What more do we have?! We have Emmanuel - God WITH us. IN us. We have the very Word of Adonai with us all the time.
Every morning I see the sunrise, or simply the sun high with the backdrop of a beautiful sky.
I should be skipping to class and work, not walking begrudgingly.
