Good Morning!! It is so amazing how a tough, sad, stressful event can bring amazing blessings into your life. I was so giddy to see my big brother in August, it had been years for no reason except time got away and even though I loved him so much we lost a connection somewhere along the way. When September came and my daddy had his surgery, stroke, seizure and coded it changed me and the family that loves him so.... Over the last 2 months I have talked to my brother so much... Since he has never been to the grill I have told him about it, he has gone onto my website and read my blogs and looked at the pictures, that is when he saw the shiny, metal plates of people's memories. Happy Beautiful Tuesday .... I opened up my mail this weekend and there I found these cherished plates , my sister-n-law is from British Colombia, Canada and they wanted the grill to have a special piece of them. A few weeks ago my Daddy wrote about his journey and how he had experienced the abundance of Gods grace and love through all of this, his faith stronger than ever.... It is hard to say but with this heartache I have experienced I received the most amazing gift ... a connection and love. I have also experienced my heavenly fathers grace and love..... It is not about waiting for the rain to pass.... It is learning to dance in the rain... I am truly blessed .... we danced and are better for it. Wow all of this from a shiny little plate hanging proudly with love at the CIG!! As my daddy said... God is good all the time!!
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.
