Good Morning!! At our family lunch on Sunday I am trying to tell the kids about the plans for the upcoming holidays. "Things will be a little different this year..... No we are not doing our usual trip to Dallas for Thanksgving and I tell them why....I also go over Christmas." This family lunch consist of Taylor(my oldest), his precious girlfriend Mindy(that I usually like more than my boys), My B & Shelby. I am getting frustrated as no one seems to be listening to me. My B is thinking about the bat he is going to buy, Taylor is irritating Mindy with crab legs(actually pretty funny when I think about it) and Shelby is engrossed in the utube feed of Felix jumping. I ask if anyone was listening to me...."yes we heard you!!" was their reponse, oh mylanta they were irritated with me!! Yesterday I receive a text message from Mindy, "what are the dates for Thanksgiving in Dallas?" ok she is my favorite I will answer nicely. I respond to her and I press send, immediatly I receive a call from Taylor..."Why are we not going to Dallas?" Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall, I know yall have all experienced days like these especially if you are a parent. I know this is how our heavenly father feels when telling us his plans for us.... I have questioned him more in the last few months than I ever have. I have ignored him and his steps for me because I feel exhausted, preoccupied, scared or I just didnt want to go there, I felt frustrated with him. Just as Taylor wanted to know why things were different this year, I have felt this way. "Why throw great change into something that I feel is pretty great just the way it is." Over the last week he has made it impossible to ignore him and his plans for me and I honestly have to say my heart is full of relief and I know he has been frustrated with me but as I had patience with my children, he has had great patience with me. Put down the phones, shut off the noise and listen.... his plan is perfect and ignoring him is absoultely exhausting. I have called upon him this week and said "ok about these plans?".....quit ignoring and ask him and then listen:) may your day be full!!
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.
