just for Christine, part 3

. . . (continuing list of wonderful things about my wonderful daughter that are evident in her wonderful blog–wonder what the motif is?)

6. Jesus. Not just her love for and commitment to Him, but Himself. They talk about that whole beholding and becoming principle. And I think it’s working.

7. Community. Christine isn’t a shock blogger, she’s not looking for attention or any of that, but she has readers. Hey, people love her and her writing; what’s not to love? But the point is that she truly values community and relationship (and, well, duh, people) and invests herself at a deep heart level in the people she loves. That not only comes out in her writing but in the fact that it’s usually a dialog–even cooler and what you might not notice is the levels of dialog behind the scenes.

(to be continued, again, maybe, later, but I think I’ll diverge for a bit . . . oh, it’ll be for, of, about and inspired by Christine, but I’m gonna go another direction in the format; if for no other reason than that it’s too easy to list wonderful things about her–that and the fact that wonderfulness tends to overlap [e.g., try talking about God’s goodness and not mentioning His kindness and mercy; yes, it can be done, but even if you don’t articulate the overlap, some folks will read it in–yes, I’m one of ’em]; and I like the idea of months down the road, popping off with #8 and it really will be #8 [in the ongoing catalog] because numbers should mean something, right? and not just be random artifacts that create faux authenticity [actually, that suggests a whole set of other wonderful things about the wonderful one, that number and logic business, but, hey, I said I’m shifting focus, so try to forget, for now, that I might have just given you 8, 9 and 10]; plus, I’m just listing and not really elaborating, which is difficult and I don’t need that kind of pain–a little freedom and free-flowing is what I need . . . )
