Good Morning!!! Yesterday was one of those days that is completely exhausting.... My son was vending ice cream at the boat races and so to say there was a lot of work to be done was an understatement. I was trying to get all of my chores done before we started setting up and we received the news of our friend Rick. We start telling B what he had to do....we were heading into town. We made our way to the hospital, not knowing the situation we were going to find. After an hour or so we realized our son needed help. All in a matter of a short time, we had our boys fighting, ice cream that was melting and needed to be restocked and a friend that was lying in a bed with no reponse, we made a choice to leave covenant with heavy hearts.....sad and frustrated with the turn of events and even more frustrated with the situation at the lake. We get to the lake and resolve the problems....as I am talking to B, I see a couple that are not just my regulars but my friends. They tell me how sorry they are about my friend..... Mr Z starts to tell me of his journey with cancer. I have known this man for 5 years and never would have guessed he had battled and won this horrible disease. This dreaded disease was in 4 places and spreading.... he said he was as low as you could get BUT never out of the game, with tears in my eyes, I tell him I love him even more.....he is a cancer survivor. At that moment I knew I was right where I needed to be.... the Lord brought Mr Z to the stand to renew my HOPE in our heavenly fathers healing. Happy Monday yall.... we all live days like these....but what I have found, this is when I talk non stop with my heavenly father. Yall whatever is going on, your life may be down but you are never out...as long as there is a breath in your body, he has got this .......lean on him yall!!!
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.
