Good Morning!! My favorite thing about Sunday is being with my family, yesterday was no different. We sat in church together and then headed to lunch. I turn from good mom to crazy mom when they do not put their phones down during our family lunch time. Taylor starts telling us of the guy that is jumping.... Felix Baumgartner. My first thought is this for real...why would anyone do this? We all broke the phone rule and started watching Felix ascend to the heavens being carried by a metallic capsule and a white baloon. Watching the live coverage from our phones we paid for our lunch and went our separate ways. Funny.....out of my family, 4 of the 5 of us ended up in a parking lot watching history happen. My heart was racing and my lips were saying prayers for his safety, it was absolutely riveting. Happy Beautiful Monday!! My thoughts went to Felix's mom, as a mom of 2 boys, I cant even imagine where her mind was, but as a parent, watching our kids live out their passion there is nothing more rewarding, this is what we want for our children. I sat in church yesterday morning, not even knowing about Felix and I watched and listened to the young man leading worship. He was amazing, he was living his passion and he was fantastic. He not only loved to sing but he loved who he was singing about, I know his mom is proud. Our heavenly father blessed us with amazing gifts, we were created to be passionate. When I watch my B on a baseball field, it fills my heart with joy because he is using the gifts the Lord gave him. If it moves our heart to watch our children live their passions, can you imagine the joy it brings our heavenly father. Its not about free falling and breaking the sound barrier(but that is pretty awesome) or singing in church, or playing baseball, it is about living up to your potential. Our heavenly father takes ordinary people and does extrodinary things with them.....live your passion yall, when others watch your passion come to life, it inspires!!!
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.
