A Bundle of Myrrh

Raising Ebenezers

May 6th, 2016 by Aubri


I like the poem by Robyn Sarah called Bounty. She opens with the line, “Make much of something small.”

Throughout the day in the midst of mess and chaos I’ll occasionally come across something that I can make much of.


A quick minute in the shaded patio to sip my coffee before someone is crying again.


The loveliness of fresh flowers on the counter or bananas on the table.


I collect these small things in my memory or swallow them with my camera, making much of and giving thanks for these small things. These small gifts from God.




And I am helped.

    Appreciating the small things certainly helps those of us who have so many small things about 🙂

    Thank you for this simple reminder. I feel like I have so many BIG things happening now, it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed….and forget the small blessings God sends my way. Thank you for reminding me to keep my eyes open.

    I’ve never thought of the small gifts as being God’s help, or if I have, I’ve forgotten. (again) Thanks for reminding me. I want to say I’ll always remember now, since God’s help is the one thing I find myself craving (and doubting) most in these here days.
