Good Morning!!......"Increase". Yesterday early lunch I was doing my normal check list..... make sure all candles are lit, all set-up is done, all of the kitchen crew caught up and on the line, all of the front of the house are where they are suppose to be and then I make my way up to the front.... I put a quarter in the gum ball machine an anticipate what color will come out...( I have done this every week for 6 years) & the last thing I check is the pie case....the one thing every guest will see when they come in, this is where I was stopped by a guest. I did not hear her when she approached and I was startled when she began talking. " Our heavenly Father wanted me to tell you HE loves you and he brings peace to you." She talks of my countenance and how my face radiates HIS love, tears brimming from my eyes, I tell her how much I appreciate her words and that I really needed to hear them....the last thing she says..."He also wanted me to tell you Increase.....Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall, what an amazing feeling of peace comes over you when you hear "HE LOVES YOU", even though as HIS child you know it. I am not sure what the word INCREASE means and neither did she, as I am telling Shelby about her words he says..."Well did you tell her to go back to him and get more info?"....yep he always make me laugh. I will now be searching for his direction and what this one word means but I wanted to pass on.... Jesus loves YOU and he wants to reign in your life and that your face, actions and heart radiate him. Where there is chaos there is peace, where there is grief there is grace!.........hummmm INCREASE this will drive me crazy!
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.
