Good Morning!! Everyday of the week I have certain regulars that usually only come on that particular day ... Yesterday, Thursday, in walked grandmother and granddaughter , Thursday has become their time together and they spend it with us. This started a few months ago. I remember, like it was yesterday, when I received the call that my precious regular had lost his battle and has slipped from this world into his eternity. She (grandmother) called to tell me the news that brought tears and heartache , not only to me but Alysha, who had served them for years... He was family . Yesterday as I walked them towards their table my precious friend says..."are you sad that the old location is almost completely torn down?" "Ya know, I think I would have been more upset if it would have happened last year when mentally & physically I was a little more fragile & missing the simplicity of the old place!" She asked a few question about my answer ...." Do you think you would have changed location if the building had not sold ?" ..."nope , I was happy and content so I needed proding from our Heavenly Father for all of this to happen!!" She laughs and really said something that we all struggle with and that my life has been based on..." I have trouble stepping out on Faith , I am fearful if I do something drastic what will happen!" Happy Beautiful Friday y'all.. How many times have we let fear take control over our faith. If I would not have had faith and trusted the direction he was pushing me (yes pushing and dragging) I would have missed out on so much ..... Stop resisting what he has for you, believe me I know how scary it is to let go and let God....but his rewards are great... He knew a lot more people needed to experience "His"grill.... & so he gave me a place that had room for a line, honestly unbelievable doesn't even describe my feelings but it All started with fear and then complete FAITH... Trust in The Lord with all your heart
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.
