Good Morning!! Shelby and I are creatures of habit. Every afternoon when we get home, we pass by our house and take a drive around the lake. I guess its where we really relax from our crazy day. Yesterday as we are coasting along we spot my B's truck parked on the side of the road. Shelby gets out and starts looking for him..... he is found underneath one of the bridges with his fishing pole in his hand and a look of pure joy..... You see my B has two passions, one is being on a baseball field and the other is sitting by water and catching fish. My heart was GIDDY, as a parent when you see your precious child doing what they love, your heart sings. Later him and I were sitting in the kitchen talking..... we talked about his papa that passed last year, he loved to fish..... I told B that I knew papa was looking down with great joy over his passion for fishing. As I was talking to him, a thought slapped me in the head.... this is how our heavenly father feels when we are living a life that includes the passions he has given us. To watch someone do what they love... to use the talent the Lord has given them, WOW it actually brings joy to those around. Happy Friday yall....our precious heavenly father is so great, he has blessed ALL of us with amazing gifts and talents.... are you using your gifts or ignoring them,be passionate yall and embrace, when we use the passion and gifts he has given it brings absolute joy to you and him:)
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.
