This morning as I was creating some Christmas Artist Trading Cards for an upcoming group swap I decided to use one of the playing cards I had on hand for a background. The card I happened to choose was the King of Hearts. Immediately the chorus from the hymn “The King of Glory” popped into my head. This had to be sent by God as I have not heard nor sung this song for years.
Come All Ye Faithful He Has Come, The Christ Of God Rejoice, Rejoice This Happy Morn It’s Christmas Day Sing Ye Songs Of Praise To Us A Child Of Hope Is Born Mortals Awake, With Angels Join A Babe Is Born In Bethlehem Sing, Oh Sing This Blessed Morn
Christians Awake, Salute The Happy Morn A Babe Is Born, To Bliss Us Bring Rejoice, Rejoice, Ye Christians On The Birthday Of The Lord Let Us All With Gladsome Voice Shout The Glad Tidings
Acrostic (Each line is the title of a Christmas Carol.)
As I was walking to my car I noticed the many leaves scattered all across the parking lot. Their colors vividly showed against the black pavement. The leaves seemed to all be from the colorful Maple trees that were planted nearby—except—right by my car I noticed one lonely Oak leaf lying in among all the Maple leaves. Thus, an inspiration for today’s poem.
