Good Morning .... My favorite verse says "I have plans for you".... It doesn't say ..." What are your plans for your life or others life." I thought I knew the Lords plans for my B's life & it included baseball in college ... Duh!! The other night I am snuggled down in bed after watching my B play a good game in 30 mile an hour wind and the dirt oh mylanta.. He asked if could talk to me and instantly my heart starts thumping, if your a parent you know this feeling. He proceeds to tell me his heart, he doesn't want to play college ball, he just wants to go to college and enjoy. I am quiet as tears roll down my cheeks, I listen to this boy I love so much and I am shouting on the inside " wait a second this is not my plan for you, what are u doing, we have planned this for 10 yrs !!" Happy Beautiful Thursday y'all... I thought I knew the "plan" and this wasn't it and then it hits me, the plan I thought was what I wanted, not what was Gods plan for my B. I think sometimes we all get this wake up call.... Not my plan its HIS plan & that's tough to swallow. Even though my heart is so sad right now, I am so proud of my B , what a big, tough decision he has made .... I am reminded daily, I may be his mom but first and foremost he is Gods child and yes he has plans for him..... Is it your plans or HIS plans... Think about that, its pretty humbling when you do..... I will cherish this time !
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.
