Good Morning!! Ya know I have alot of guest, that have become dear friends, that are struggling through health crises. We have laughed, we have cried....we have celebrated and prayed. One of this amazing survivors is finished with treatment and the cancer is "gone" has been said. Last week she was in and ask me to pray for someone that was very dear to her.....this persons cancer is not gone...infact spreading rapidly. As my precious survivor looked at me with tears in her eyes she says "why me....why is mine gone and hers isnt?" I have thought about these words every since she said them. A few days ago I tell Shelby about this conversation and I cant keep the tears from flowing. So many people scream why me in the face of adversity yet so few people say why me when something amazing happens. Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall. What person does the Lord want us to be?. When your heart is focused on others around you, (yes we all know love thy neighbor as thy self) our rewards are great. In the last few weeks I have had the great opportunity to listen to others share a journey that is full of struggles....searching for the right path and direction for them and it puts my struggle with finding a new place to house this grill in perspective.It takes my why me and turns it into why not me in any situation. My heart is overflowed with love for my friend that is in remission.... she is loving her neighbor as herself. Have a beautiful blessed day....we all can learn from this beautiful survivor, my cup runneth over with the opportunity to witness this unconditional love.
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.
