Your acrostic is excellently-created, moving, and deeply reverent. It tells the truth about who He is, why He came, and how we should feel and react to His unique grace.

Such a special acrostic. There is so much beauty in your words here, reminding us to be humble in spirit and making sure we devote our time and lives to Him.
I also loved your last stanza about birth and a new morning. Be it celebrating the life we have in Christ because of His birth that we celebrate on Christmas through to His death and then the resurrection, or a new birth we can have now through baptism, I found so much meaning there. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the contest!

It may seem premature to some readers to be writing about Christmas, but it is always worth reminding people of the true meaning of our Saviour's arrival and his message. I like how Mary features in your poem - motherlove. This line is a more subtle mention of faith that I liked a lot:
'Take the time to touch the morning
In simple ways watch His dawning '

This is a wonderful acrostic and I'm sorry I don't have a six left for it. Your last line is especially meaningful because we need the Lord every minute of every day. He never ceases loving us and cares about everything we are going through in this present world. The new one lying ahead is filled with His glory and will bathe our hearts in perfect peace and eternal joy. xo

This meets the contest requirements beautifully as you deliver a structurally sound Acrostic Poem. I like your approach of using a Christmas motif to set the stage as that special time of year is not very far away. Good luck in the judging and thank you very much for sharing it.

A wonderful Christmas message. Your double acrostic delivers a well known message. As a reader it would have provided more punch if you had presented the acoustic words opinion bold or larger font. Good success. write on and write often...

This work has reached the exceptional level

I couldn't agree more with your message. I particularly love the way you express it - not just the acrostic, but the whole thing has a reverent, gentle feel to it - I especially love the lines "Take the time to touch the morning / In simple ways watch His dawning". They are inviting and genlte - not too preachy.

Lovely.
