Good Morning!! There is a person that has been in my life a long time. His son and my B have been best friends for as long as I can remember. A few years ago he was diagnoised with cancer in his neck area. He was having a really hard time staying positive. Shelby and I tried to be his cheerleaders.... Bible verses sent to him daily and alot of prayer, he almost became reclusive. Months of treatment found his cancer gone... a celebration was going on but not for long it was back and this time required very invasive surgery and more treatment. He could not eat and in time he lost a lot of weight, but this go around, even though he was still in a deep depression, he would come hang out at the grill, not to eat but to feed his soul. His mind set was getting stronger. After a long year he was told the cancer was gone once again. We once again were lifting our praises upward. The last year has been great for him, he has felt great and enjoying his life again. re-building relationships. Last Wednesday morning the grill was crazy busy.... I was leaning down taking a to go order when I see someone sit at the bar, I look up to find my friend with tears rolling down his face..... My heart stopped, I knew it was back. When one of my friends is hurting, it's like everything stops. I stopped what I was doing and immediatly went to him after some whispered words and tears we prayed. I am not just hearbroken with the cancer being back, I am heartbroken because I do not want him to revert into staying at home by himself and dwelling on it. I want him to live and enjoy his beautiful life. I once again come to yall and ask for prayers, I ask not for just prayers of healing, but for his heart, I pray that he experiences pure joy everyday and that only comes from our father. Happy Monday yall..... This place the Lord has blessed me with has seen a lot of tears..... but through those tears this place has experienced true blessings. I pray yall have an amazing Monday!!!
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.
