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 ūüôā

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 ‚Äď our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.‚ÄĚ

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 ūüôā

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

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.”
