Good Morning!! About a month ago, something happened to my son....at the hands of his best friend. My whole family was angry including myself, we talked about it.... really could not believe it happened. After the momma bear in me calmed down, I started talking to both of my boys about allowing forgiveness into their hearts, at first that wanted nothing to do with that, they felt betrayed by someone they loved very much. I started praying about it for them, and his best friend. I also started talking to them about my own experiences.....forgiving someone is absolutely freeing of your heart....doesnt matter who was right or wrong. I learned this to late in some situtations so never again will I allow no forgiveness in my heart. Over the last few weeks I would see steps to move forward and then their anger would rise up again and they did not want to listen to me...betrayal is a horrible thing. This weekend, it slowly came to a head either give forgiveness and move on or have terrible resentment. I am writing this with a heart full of praise because my heavenly father opened my boys hearts ...all of my tears and prayers over this situation came to pass right in front of me. Happy Beautiful Monday yall....I heard a saying the other day, "Usually the things that hurt the most, usually come from the people we trust the most." Forgiveness is the most powerful thing you can give to others and I know when we are let down, betrayed or hurt its hard to let it go and open your hearts....but it what our heavenly father does with us everyday. Forgiveness yall......its honestly more important for your heart then the other persons heart. Watching my boys open theirs and allow forgiveness in.....absolutely priceless.
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.
