Good Morning!! This life we live is beautiful & fragile. My precious Sam, I am, is waking up to a life that seems unbearable this morning.....he received the call yesterday that his daughter was taken in a car wreck and as so many of you know his world will never be the same. Over the last 5 1/2 years I have met so many parents that live in this world and have so graciously shared their journey with me. I am asking for prayers for Sam, his family and 3 precious daughters that have been left grieving & their world will never be the same. In times like these it is so hard to understand our heavenly Fathers plan for each one of us. "My heavenly Father, my heart is broken for my precious Sam, may you wrap your loving arms of comfort around him and bring absolute "perfect peace" that only comes from you." We just never know what this beautiful life will bring......say "I love you" to those you treasure they are a gift.....Everytime I meet a parent that has lost a child their response......"By the grace of God I am standing.......because of HIM I can breath." My heart breaks for the journey the Lord has for Sam but the Lord lives in Sam and he will carry him through. Is your eternity set? where is your relationship with the creator of the Universe. His promise to his children, He will bring comfort when there is pain, he will bring peace through turmoil and he will restore joy when there is sadness....... "Footprints in the Sand" reminds me of these promises when my world is shaken....... My heart will be with my sweet Sam today, that he rest in our heavely Fathers arms as he is carried through grief that is bigger than my heart can imagine.
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.
