And I prayed that I still had a home

Woot woot!  Finally, a 30 day post series I might actually stick with - this one's on music.  Today is your favourite song, and at first I thought this would be impossible, since my taste in music really depends on my mood.  But then I remembered I do have a favourite, no matter how I'm feeling.

And I'm not feeling great right now.  That heavy suffocating hand of depression is inexorably pushing my face into the ground, and I'm struggling to breathe.  So I'm glad for a post series that will encourage me to think about something other than this dark cave I've stumbled into again.

My favourite song is Keith Green's The Prodigal Son Suite, even though listening to it hurts my heart.  Someday I'll be on the right end of this song.  Happy early Easter, everyone.


  1. oh wow, it has been a very long time since I listened to Keith Green-I always loved the song he wrote for Melody when they first met, one of my faves :)

  2. This is such a good song! I had forgotten about it! Thanks for reminding me of it's awesomeness!

    I'm new to your blog! I found you on FTLOB and can't wait to read more! Feel free to check out my blog as well!

  3. Thanks Kate! I was thinking you looked familiar and when I clicked on your name, I realized I was already following you! lol thanks for joining up :)

  4. i just love keith green! we got a huge 4 cd set of all his greatest stuff & i love almost all of it. it was so unexpected to see you list it as a favorite since hardly anyone seems to remember that he existed anymore.
    interesting that your tags are "bad things, God." we've all been there. hang tough, this too shall pass.

  6. Hello. I am coming from the Lady Bloggers Tea Party. First of all, I must admit that I am not a huge fan of Keith Green, but I listened and I like. Also, I know what you mean about feeling down. I struggle, but finding something you enjoy doing to distract you will help you move forward.

    If you have a chance please check out my blog and tell me what you think.

  10. I've felt that hand before... not fun (<--understatement). Wafting healing and peace in your direction.

    Happy Easter!

  12. Ixy,

    I love that song! Keith Green is a favorite of mine. I need to buy some CD's or MP3's though, as all of my Keith Green music is in cassette tapes. (That gives away my age a little bit. ;-))

    I am very sorry that depression is taking you down like this. May God lift you up out of the pit and set your feet on a firm place.
