Good Morning!!... It was a typical crazy Friday around here and I had been in the kitchen most of the morning, when I finally escaped for a few minutes I make my way to the front, there standing at the pie bar was a couple talking and looking at all the pies, as I walk by the guy blurts out.." Do you still take people's old boots to hang up?" Absolutely was my reply and I told them the same thing I tell everyone ... "On a piece of paper write what you want on the bottom of the boot and slide it in it so I will know what to write." I never gave this conversation another thought as my Friday became crazier and crazier. Friday afternoon came and I had a meeting that I had been dreading, I left the grill exhausted mentally , emotionally and physically, I was completely worn out. This is how I have felt for a while now.."worn smooth out". Shelby and I make our way to the grill to do some work this weekend , my thoughts never far from the issues swirling around me as I walk through the dark dining room I notice a pair of boots in my hostess stand, I immediately remember my conversation with the couple on Friday, I picked up the pink and brown boots, I turned them over to find the soles completely worn out and full of holes, these boots have had a journey... My instructions written on a scrap of paper... "Gods love NEVER wears out." Happy Wednesday y'all.... What a beautiful phrase and I needed the reminder, even when we are full of holes, dirt and worn out & we have nothing else to give our precious Heavenly Father is there, because his love for us never wears out. I have said it before but it is such an honor when people allow me to be apart of their journey and they display a little of their life & in the process they are making a difference. What a blessing..... As you go through your day and u feel their is nothing left and your are worn out remember this phrase written in your "soul" !! His Love never wears out.
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.
