Pirates for Jesus
This is a conversation I had with Rocket last night before he went to bed. We were singing 'Jesus Loves Me' (as we usually do) and when we got to the part that says "He is strong" Rocket asked:
"Why is Jesus strong?"
I said, "Because he made everything."
He said "Oh, did he make pirates?"
"well... he made people, and some people become pirates."
"Did he make me?"
"Yes, he sure did!"
"Oh... then can I become a pirate?"
"Well, I guess you could."
He says, "What do I have to do to become a pirate?"
I replied, "Well you would have to have a big ship and live on the ocean and say 'arrrrrgh'"
"Oh! Well, if I were a pirate I would not love Jesus and he would not be in my heart" he said.
"Why not???"
"cause pirates are bad."
"well, if you were a pirate, you would be good right?"
"Pirates can be good??"
"Yes, they can be good too."
"Ok, than I will be a good pirate- a pirate for Jesus."
What a better goal than to be a pirate for Jesus?? I hope I can find a shirt that says 'Pirates for Jesus'. I will buy it for Rocket.

If you can't find that shirt, make it, then sell it. I would totally buy one for my husband.

Does your husband want to be a pirate? My brother wants to be a pirate... I think I could start out with a pretty good consumer base.

There actually seems to be a handful of Pirates for Jesus online.

He does, he has an eye patch and everything! I'll have to look up these shirts. He's love it.

If you make some shirts up, I'll buy one (maybe two!) Just not black. Not crazy about black T-shirts. Large please!!!

You can send me a bill...

Timmay said...

I like the Jesus pirate... I just wouldnt want to look like I was mocking Jesus.

I'll add you to my list of potential buyers for when I do make the Pirates for Jesus shirt. Is pink OK?

"We are the Pirates who don't do anything, we just stay home & lie around. And if you ask if to do anything, we'll just tell you 'We don't do anything!' "

Naomi said...

Lazy pirates??? You are the kind of pirates that give pirates a bad name... get up start being a pirate for Jesus!! Interested in a T-shirt?

Aunt Donna & Cole said...

Noooo ~ not lazy pirates, VEGGIE Pirates! Cole was singing the song from Jonah & other Veggie Tale cds. Maybe you could find Rocket a Veggie Tales 'Pirates Who Don't Do Anything' t-shirt. The Veggie Rock cd has a fun/cool version of this silly song by Reliant K. BTW - your t-shirt design is cool!
