“And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day. And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.” -Genesis 35:19-21

“Rachel died and was buried. . . . And Jacob set up a pillar over her tomb. . . . Israel journeyed on.” Genesis 35:19–21

Israel, having lost his best beloved on earth, journeyed on. Losses and sorrows don’t stop you. They go with you. You leave a pillar. You carry the pain.@JohnPiper
