He’s Alive

He really is, you know. I’ll let Dolly (and Peter) tell you how it happened:

If that doesn’t give you chills, you should probably check your pulse. God bless you all, and have a very blessed Easter.

Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he is life! If up till now you have kept him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust him, be confident that he is close to you, he is with you and he will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he would have you do.

    I definitely have a pulse… I’ve heard the song many times before, but it still gives me the shivers!

    Not sure I’ve got a pulse, but then again I can’t stand Dolly, but then again it did wake up my Atheist Evangelist roomate, he swore and said something about pagen fertility rituals, I usually pretty low key about that stuff, because you just can’t debunk these guys. But if you are going to tell me on Good Friday noless that I’m celebrating free sex, I reserve the right to hit you over the head with the truth!

    Love me some Dolly, but really? How about the cat who actually wrote the song about 8,000,000 years before she recorded it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Lmv_xR6_q8

    It’s like Trent Rezner said when he heard Johnny Cash’s version of “Hurt”: “It’s his song now.”

    But yes, credit where credit is due.
