Good Morning!! R yall watchng the Olympics? I have to say, with head hung low, I am not. Since I was a kid I have watched every one, but this Summer Olympics, I have had to much going on......I am consumed in my own little world. Last week, Shelby told me about the double amputee runner from South Africa. I was half listening, looked at the picture he showed me and then it immediatly left my thoughts. On Saturday, Shelby and I had been looking for places to house my beautiful grill and I was exhausted. When I get home, Shelby cops a squat on the deck and I walk right pass him to go lay down( never do I do this on a Saturday) of course yall guessed it all that was on was the Olympics.....as I am staring at the t.v there is the olympian from South Africa his legs made by man..... My heart was full,tears running down my face.... if you had a chance to watch, we were experiencing a miracle right in front of us. He was fulfilling his dream of running in the Olympics. His journey has been tough with a lot of people saying "No way" but he kept his dream alive with an extreme amount of hard work and never giving up.I received a scripture card yesterday from my precious regular. "Dont worry that you are not strong enough before you begin...It is in the journey the God makes you strong." I needed these words yesterday and I needed to experience this amazing strong Olympian. Happy Beautiful Tuesday yall.... This man became a runner with no legs!! what is the Lord pushing u to do and you feel you are not equipped with the right tools..... He has a great plan for all of us and through the journey he will give you the right tools. I pray yall have an amazing blessed day......experiencing miracles and blessing what an amazing life he has given:)
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.
