Good Morning!! Its ALL about ice cream. That creamy ice cold sweet food brought alot of emotion and discussion last night and actually caused me to get a little irritated. On Monday nights, the CIG serves at St. Benedicts chapel, its a place for the hungry to come. My crew always prepares great food, and then it is taken down to the chapel where it is served by a great group of volunteers. Every week for 3 years I have served alot of the same people.( last night 116) I serve ice cream for dessert, they love it. From week to week they will ask for a different flavor and I try to remember their request. Its just like anywhere you go, you have the ones that love to cause trouble. One guy in particular, will stand at the door and knock, if we are running a little late, he then proceeds to come in and starts talking..."Who is going to give me their ice cream" and then takes others ice cream and hides it so he can have it. Last night he was loudly professing he had 5 bowls of the sweet cream. I just couldn't stand it anymore, and proceeded to tell him how selfish his actions were. Slap me over the head..... I allowed his actions to get the best of me, over ice cream. Our precious heavenly father has given me this great opportunity to serve and I am to feed them and love them, guide them. We all have someone in our life that really gets our blood boiling..... it is how we react to them that can really make a difference in their life and yours. Happy Tuesday yall!! its how we repond to be others actions that will make the lasting impression, not what they did to irritate you:)
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.
