Jesus Vader is on my fridge.

As I may have mentioned before, I teach 4 year olds at church. They are hyper, impossible to keep still, and also kind of adorable.

Today we talked about the Bible story of Jesus calming the waters, and I asked the kids to draw something from the lesson during our drawing time. So one little girl draws a picture of a stick figure guy standing in a boat. It's quite good for a four year old, since I can actually tell it's a guy standing in a boat. She shows it to me and says it's Jesus. I tell her it's very good. She goes back to her chair to draw some more. Then she brings it up to me and says it's for me to keep. I noticed that among the things she's added is the world "no" written a couple of times across the bottom. I ask what it is, and she explains that he's going "noooooooooooooooooo". Without really thinking about it, I go "What, like Darth Vader in Star Wars?" And she say yes, exactly, it's Darth Vader from Star Wars.

So yeah. Darth Vader = Jesus. I am keeping this picture forever. :D
