Good Morning!! My B was born with severe ear problems that lead to no equilibrium. Constant pain and screaming from the day he was born. I would take him to his pediatrician and he would dismiss me as a crazy mom...when you can vacuum around the bed of a sleeping baby and he does not move or wake up...there is a problem...when the time came for him to crawl or even babble in a baby's sweet way there was none of this from him. We would prefer to not take him places because he was always discontent (screaming) I flew to my dads with my precious boys for the weekend(other passengers never liked us) Returning home at 6:00 am Monday morning came and the flight took off. My boys and I sat in the front row and 6 other business men were staggered throughout the plane. The flight attendant tried every way to help me with my B. Shelby met us at the gate and I am in tears...it had been rough. We exited through the glass doors to the parking lot( completely deserted) Out of nowhere a Lady starts saying "EXCUSE ME, EXCUSE ME" I turn to see the gaudiest lady I had ever seen...Jet Back puffy hair, loud silky shirt, and big huge baubles hanging from her neck..I meekly say "yes", "Did you know your baby scream's a lot!! before I could answer...Her voice softens and she proceeds to tell me "Get him help now, before it is to late" my son was the same way and he had trouble walking and never heard or spoke a word." as I turn to Shelby, Taylor says "Where did she go?" and she was gone. A friend of mine ,Bob, was overcome with grief when the anniversary of his mom's death rolls around, this year he just could not shake it. He walks outside of his place of business to pray....or more like plead with our heavenly father to ease his pain. An elderly gentleman pulls up to Bob's business gets out of his car and walks right past him, he then turns around an walks back and says.." God told me to tell you that everything is going to be alright, and that he loves you." Bobs mouth dropped open and he thanked him and told him he "needed that", the response from the stranger one word "Good". The car flipping over and over threw Shelby's mom to the side of the highway... total chaos was erupting on that busy highway in Dallas. There were two men, one named Dan, that came to her side as she lay there with little breath left in her.... These precious men began to pray quietly with her.... they then realized a man had gathered at her feet and was praying loudly.... and then he was gone. Happy Beautiful Thursday ya'll... I share these 3 stories....first of all because they mean so much to me. When we are in doubt, scared, in deep sorrow or just unsure our heavenly father is there. I have experienced his love and comfort in so many forms... I believe miracles have happened right in front of me. These strangers that have become a part of my journey or Bobs journey or Dan's journey are something we will never forget. Our precious heavenly father lets us know all is going to be well. Joshua 1:9... "The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go". He loves us and cares for us and the strangers he puts in our lives, Life changing!! Enjoy the beautiful rain...it is a gift!!
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.
