Each year his mother made him a little robe and took it to him when she went up with her husband to offer the annual sacrifice.

1 Samuel 2:19

How Hannah must have looked forward to this annual family pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the opportunity it gave her to see her son! And how diligently and lovingly she must have made the little robe she would take with her each year, a true gift of love! It is not too hard to imagine how Samuel also looked forward to these regular occasions.
How much loving care do we put into preparing the gifts – our offerings of praise – we present to God, regularly each Lords Day? Amazingly he looks forward to receiving our love gifts, however small and insignificant they may be!
