‘Come together, right now… ” The Beatles

Welcome to the joint blog site of David and Cindy Litwin. In a world of “I have my stuff and he has his,” we wanted to create a blogsite together; to be part of each others passions and thoughts and to have something else to talk about during dinner with the family :). You will soon see just how different we both are, and while you probably won’t find David putting up his latest food recipe (or, he might!) nor me sharing the latest philosophical truths, hopefully you will find that we complement each other and that we inspire you as you read. Let the journey (for all of us) begin.

43things

43 THINGS DAVID HAS LEARNED:

1.    Love and Joy are contagious, bitterness and envy are infectious.

2.    God hates sarcasm.

3.    Wisdom is a promise of reading the book of Proverbs.

4.    Women are stronger than most men ( especially my wife ).

5.    Political, religious and sexual preferences doesn’t define someone’s identity – it influences their actions.

6.    My wife is a Jewel in the eyes of God.

7.    A good breadth and depth of reading is better than a college degree.

8.    God is bigger than my failures.

9.    Debt enslaves.

10.  Everyday science is proving God, it just doesn’t know it.

11.  Praise of children shapes their personality … and their creativity.

12.  Leaders are readers, but writers are revolutionaries.

13.  We all need to “live inspired” ( Spirit led ).

14.  God is the ultimate story writer.

15.  When you leave a room, the people gathered should be more encouraged, educated and motivated than they were when you walked in.

16.  Eye contact in conversation heals and binds.

17.  The church is truly herself AFTER a disaster occurs … it needs to treat each moment that way, because everyone is suffering from something.

18.  You don’t really know who your friends are … until you move.

19.  Singer, songwriter Jack Johnson is one of the most powerful and profound believers on the planet  … just don’t tell anyone ( it’s a secret ).

20.  We should never attack peoples actions, but we should lovingly address the painful outcomes.

21.  God isn’t a Republican … or a Democrat.

22.  Darwin’s dead … Jesus Lives! ( do you really want to put your faith in the dead guy? )

23.  Polarization is one of the enemy’s greatest tools.

24.  My wife’s green cooking has kept me healthy.

25.  Listening ( especially spiritual listening ) is a lost art … but an incredible tool.

26.  I wish I hadn’t watched so much MTV… or drank so many Big Gulps and eaten so much fast food … as a kid.

27.  The gospel of the “Kingdom” has yet to be preached in all corners of the earth ( especially in the U.S. )

28.  Fear is a physical reality based on events that have yet to occur … for some those events can be weeks, years or circumstances away, for others just seconds.

29.  Happiness is based on Happenings, Joy is based in Christ ( Scott from my Bible Study taught me that one ).

30.  Save, save, save. don’t spend, spend, spend. ( learned that one the hard way )

31.  I like mushrooms, sour cream and avocados. ( hated them as a kid )

32.  Everyone has a story.

33.  Empathy is a key to changing this world.

34.  I love Big Bang Theory.

35.  I have been blessed with a lot of cool talents … and I need to use them more.

36.  I need to live close to a beach ( 30 miles or closer would be perfect ).

37.  It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor be hasty and miss the way ( Proverbs )

38.  People need to cultivate relationships.

39.  We should be able to walk arm in arm without seeing eye to eye ( Rick Warren )

40.  God isn’t as religious as people make him out to be.
