hot topic: S. Truett Cathy & Chick-fil-A

The Founder of Check-fil-A died yesterday at the age of 93 and I’m choosing (thanks Robert Bowman for the grammar help!!) to blog on him today since I blogged last week about Joan River’s death.  Please don’t get nervous & think that all of my hot topic blogs are now going to turn into obituaries – not so 🙂

But in all fairness, it seems appropriate to honor a man who achieved many commendable accomplishments. Mr Cathy is probably most well known for being the founder of the fast food chain Chick-fil-A and he also was a man of deep convictions, generosity and noteworthy business acumen.  Here’s a cool quote from Mr Truett,

“Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.”

If you’d like to know more about him, there’s plenty of web links to explore, but here’s one for starting:  Truett Cathy 

One of the lessons I learned last week from my Joan Rivers blog is to request any comments to be respectful and not hostile or combative, please and thank you 🙂

With that being said, please be very free to leave your polite feedback and share this blog with your friends 🙂

Happy Memorial Day!

When I think of Memorial Day, some thoughts swirl through my mind:  grilling, Summer, Normandy, sacrifice, freedom, flags, generosity, hotdogs, reflection and more.  Virtually every country has it’s unique version of our Memorial Day – when we remember heroes, sacrifice, many essential values with our nationhood, etc.

And here’s a unique twist on the idea of remembering:  God never forgets you.  Indeed may these verses encourage you that you are never forgotten (they can also help you to remember savingmoses )

Is 49:15-16 “Can awoman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb ? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. 16 “Behold, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”
