Good Morning!! Sometimes its really hard to sing praises when things seem dark..... My B received word the other night that one of his friends was in the hospital. This precious, blond haired boy had just swung by the house Saturday to pick up B. On Tuesday I had talked to his mom, her concern overwhelming.... he was very sick, high fever, dizzy and stomach issues, she was concerned of him already missing school. The doc said "severe flu". Wednesday morning he walks out of his room burning up with a dangerous temp she makes the split second decision to go to the hospital.They start blood work and tell of the cause of what is going on....yes alarming.... but they can take care of it. A scan is ordered out of precaution.... and there on the screen a tumor in his brain. As a mom this just sucks the breath out of you. The reason I am sharing? This precious boy's grandfather is my regular.....as he entered the grill yesterday my heart skipped a beat, I immediatly went to him and the tears started flowing, as the craziness of the grill was going on around us we sat at a table and cried. This man is a cancer survivor, strong in everyway, but to see his heart broken over his precious grandson no words can describe.The words out of my mouth had been said hours earlier to Shelby.... "Our heavenly father is SO Good..... this horrible sickness came so they would find this tumor".... and when I say it, it just makes my heart sing. Happy Friday yall...out of great sorrow, anger, frustration and great concern for this child of God we can find a great praise and amazing peace. If life seems really dark right now, look deep and find a praise, its there yall because as we all say it God is good all the time and the plan for us and this precious child is great!! May you sing his praises today yall:)
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.
