Christ’s message in all its richness must live in your hearts. Teach and instruct one another with all wisdom… Everything you do or say, then, should be done in the name of the Lord Jesus, as you give thanks through him to God the Father.
-Colossians 3:16-17 (GNT)
On 1st April 1973 it was “Grandma’s Day” – I know this because I have in my hand a copy of “Daily Light” in which is written:-
Happy Grandma’s Day (dated)
With all my love xxxxxxxxxxx”
Nana was my father’s mother and I had a special bond with her. When she died in 1984, I was given a few small “keepsakes” from her belongings – they are of no monetary value whatsoever but I treasure them for their sentimental value.
The Daily Light came back to me a decade after I gave it to her and two decades after that, in 2001, I picked it up one day and started reading it again. It played a significant part in my story which will unfold as I develop Airing Wisdom.
Reading it this morning Col 3:16-17 stood out because it encapsulates my vision for this blog. I want my posts to speak of the riches in Christ; to draw others into a relationship with him; to reflect the wisdom he gives; to be done in his name and acknowledge my thanks to God the Father for all he has done and is doing for me.
