One of the first bikes we probably learned to ride was a tricycle—a steady three-wheeled bike. A favorite game of many is the card game Uno---which word you shout out when you get down to one card. When you put the first syllable for that bike together with the card game you get Triune! Three-in-one!

2 Chronicles 13:11-14
11 They offer to the Lord every morning and every evening burnt offerings and incense of sweet spices, set out the showbread on the table of pure gold, and care for the golden lampstand that its lamps may burn every evening. For we keep the charge of the Lord our God, but you have forsaken him. 12 Behold, God is with us at our head, and his priests with their battle trumpets to sound the call to battle against you. O sons of Israel, do not fight against the Lord, the God of your fathers, for you cannot succeed.”
13 Jeroboam had sent an ambush around to come upon them from behind. Thus his troops were in front of Judah, and the ambush was behind them. 14 And when Judah looked, behold, the battle was in front of and behind them. And they cried to the Lord, and the priests blew the trumpets. (ESV)
