"Keep Me From Blowing Away"

Well I spent my whole lifetime
In a world where the sunshine
Finds excuses for not hangin' 'round
I squandered emotions
On the slightest of notions
And the first easy loving I found
But soon all the good times
The gay times and play times
Like colors run together and fade
Oh Lord if you hear me
Touch me and hold me
And keep me from blowing away

There's times when I trembled
When my mind remembered
The days that just crumbled away
With nothing to show
But these lines that I know
Are beginning to show in my face

Oh Lord if you're listening
I know I'm no Christian
And I ain't got much coming to me
So send down some sunshine
Throw out your lifeline
And keep me from blowing away

Oh Lord if you hear me
Touch me and hold me
And keep me from blowing away

Linda Ronstadt

I just found your post on walkon2006 from an earlier post I had. Before I read your comment I just got finished typing and posting something that is just ugly. I'm in a really bad state at the moment.

Your comment was so incredibly uplifting. It seems you have been through so many of the same things I am going through. Thank you so much for sharing.

I wish so bad I had a church family like yours to feel safe with to feel like I'm not going off the deep end.

I don't know where to turn at this point, but I do thank God that you are there. Your post was the first time anyone has ever commented on my blog. It really did mean a lot to me.

thank you. I have added your blog to my favorites.
