From the February 1949 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IF the present seems bleak and barren, strewn with the rocks of uncertainty, fear, doubt, and remorse, with no encouraging prospect, then you may be at Bethel, where Jacob found himself at sunset, where he gathered stones for his pillows when he lay down to sleep. No doubt Jacob's thoughts were troubled as he lay with his head pillowed on a stone, for behind him were experiences which caused him regret and great fear of consequences.
