Good Morning!! A year and a half ago, I was trying the claw my way out of the recession, everyone that worked here was frustrated and emotionally exhausted. Besides my business being down, my equipment was breaking one piece at a time and my appliances at home were breaking. I felt I was at my breaking point. One of my co-workers came to me and reported something else was not working properly. I threw up my hands and shouted.... "everything around me is broken except for me." That was on a Tuesday, and on Wednesday I broke my foot in two places. I have often thought of those days and that phrase I shouted. In some way I felt, "Hello Lord, have you forgotten about me?" I felt scared, and unsure and yes broken, but the Lord was preparing me, he was making me strong and thankful. When you are at your breaking point it is so hard to keep focused and stay faithful to him. We all feel forgotten when we are in the valley trying to claw our way out. Being broken brought a whole new meaning to me the day I broke my foot. I was wallering in misery and he gently shook me up. I was given rest and a new persepctive, I realized I was not broken, that I had been blessed. Happy Monday yall, if you are in the valley, stay faithful..... he may bend us to the point of breaking, but he wont allow you to fall in a million pieces. May yall have an amazing blessed day:)
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
