An Extraordinary Girl

I have decided not to get too personal on this blog for the last few months. The reason is that opening up my personal life on here has resulted in a degree of confusion for my regular readers, since I feel comfortable sharing the good things, but (for obvious reasons) am reluctant to speak of break-ups and the bad things (and spare others any embarrassment). Therefore I just figured I would suspend speaking of the good things so as to not have to explain any changes or negative results that may come. However, after I thought about it, I realized that I really value this blog as a personal and theological venue.  So I have decided to speak about personal things again, perhaps on a more limited basis than before. I thought quoting a song would be appropriate to describe this past weekend, when I hung out with my new girlfriend Jennifer and her friends. I chose this song:

if the weather was inclement
I’d have told you in a minute
you can rest your worries here
anytime you want to dear
and if it’s moving way too fast
well there is this looking glass
the future and the past
are breaking down in all this sunshine

you ought to know i guess
it’s a different sort of day
when you walked by in that dress

and she’s not an ordinary girl
she’s a million miles away
in an extraordinary world
and i guess i’d have to say
come whatever come what may
i just pray to reach you
where it hurts the most
hold you just a little closer

with the blue sky over my head
and it’s so plain to everyone
the street is beat
and there’s a lot of nothing to be done
here’s a loyal heart
has yours once ever been broken?
and all the loudest words it seems
are the ones that don’t get spoken

color me impressed
you could say i’m in deep
yeah more or less

and she’s not an ordinary girl
she’s a million miles away
in an extraordinary world
and i guess i’d have to say
come whatever come what may
i just pray to reach you
where it hurts the most
hold you just a little closer
