Good Morning!! Last fall I wrote of a precious young man, he is a senior at Idalou High School.The 2nd day of the school year he became violently ill and was hospitalized and diagnoised with west nile meningitis, during the scan of his body they found a brain tumor. I talked of his journey, what an amazing blessing it was that he became ill....they found the tumor. The 6'9 inch young man is a basketball player and his goal was to heal from surgery and play his senior year, the game he loves so much. The Idalou Wildcats will play in the semi finals of the State championship this morning and this precious young man will be leading this amazing special team.....he has played and played well. His quote in the paper really hit me this morning....." At church they say God puts his toughest warriors through the toughest challenges, something like that." Happy Beautiful Friday yall!! ........yesterday I spoke of "I have seen the healing hands of God" here it is right in front of us.... I pray for strength mentally and physically for these boys this morning. Out of the mouth of babes we can learn so much......whatever you are going through today, life's tough challenges, remember this quote from this young man. The toughest warriors go through the toughest challenges. I promise I will keep this with me always!! Good Luck Idalou Wildcats...... WOOT WOOT..... proud to be a Wildcat!!
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.
