Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes

Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin, Art by James Dean

I LOVE this book! My students LOVE this book! The soundtrack for it is awesome.

Pete the Cat has some cool white shoes. But they don't stay white. And Pete is cool with that, because it's all good.

Once you listen to this book on CD and check out the neat illustrations, the song and words will be burned into your memory. My kinders cannot help but jump up and move to the music when we have this book playing.

Don't want to ruin the ending for you. We created our own guitar props and added a tail, ears, kitty nose, and whiskers to our bodies to become like Pete the Cat. And then we went walking down the street...

Best Friend

"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." John 15:13

Approximately 2000 years ago today, my best Friend did this.

He willingly and painfully gave up His life for me, His friend. Me, who wouldn't be born for over 2000 years. He, who is master of all time, space, and eternity, chose to take the hard way. For me.

For you.

His name is Jesus. The Name above ALL Names. Not some names. Not a few. Not just the pretty people (or the poor or the wise or the silly or this or that group). All.

"For God so loved the world (the WHOLE world, meaning the people on the whole world, including those in the past, present, and future) that He gave His one and only Son (ONE means 1, not any other number; only means ONLY), that whoever (WHO EVER, anyone can choose to believe, but choose they must do, just as Christ CHOSE to die for us) believes in Him shall not perish (ie: spend all time beyond death in separation from God) but have eternal life (that's a long time folks, eternity, to infinity and beyond)." John 3:16

Thank you, Jesus, for choosing me. And us.
