Good Morning!! Have you ever experienced a moment and your first thought is "how can people think that God really doesn't exist.....or he is dead".This week for us is typically a little slower, people recovering from taxes and getting ready for Easter .... Yesterday the guests started flowing in sporadically... The biggest blessing I receive when this happens is I have time to chat with the amazing guest that walk through the doors.... This is usually when I am told something that is life changing for me..... My guest just talk and I listen and soak it up like a thirsty sponge. I greet the lady holding a baby carrier and ask how many ... 4 was her response .." 4 and the baby?" Or 3 and the baby ?" Babies that visit the grill are usually in their carrier and covered up by blankets so I am never quite sure .... Boy or girl ? 3 it was , so off we went, we were talking small talk as we made our way to the table and she places the carrier in the chair...as she started to pull the blanket off the carrier I always wonder what I will see ..... Small, big, bald, lots of hair, an infant or an older baby .... Sleeping or wide awake..... As I look down at the 4 week old precious sleeping baby what I saw was breath taking and beautiful..... And yes my first thought what an amazing God we serve..... Happy beautiful Thursday y'all ..... This precious baby boy didn't have 10 fingers and 10 toes... He didn't even have feet or legs and only had 5 fingers because the other arm was missing a hand and instantly my first thought he was perfect. I look up from this precious baby to see a mom that is brimming with joy and love ....she tells of their journey ... 22 weeks into pregnancy is when she found out .... Eventually new legs from the Scottish Rite organization will help him....." But he is absolutely in perfect health... What a blessing" .....my response" Wow God has an amazing plan for you and him" I leave her table and my thoughts are swirling and my heart is thankful....... I didn't feel sad for this little angel , I felt blessed ..... Blessed to have an amazing Heavenly Father that loves us, died for us, protects us, comforts us and has great plans for us.... I know my God is alive ...... He created this perfect little boy to make a difference in so many people life's.
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.
