Good Morning!! The power of prayer.... Back in November I talked of a precious regular, him & I have been on a journey together for 6 years, we have shared tears of loosing his wife, we have celebrated his new marriage & he has walked away from me leaving me speechless the day he told me of his cancer diagnoses & then absolute broken hearted as he shared "I am stopping all treatment ... I am going to allow my body to heal & enjoy my holidays with my precious family", I will never forget that day.. him & I standing in the center of the grill, we were crazy busy & him sharing his decision , tears flowing from both of us . Yes I wrote of his journey back in November. During December he and his kids were constantly on my mind and in my prayers . Early one morning a few weeks ago I open my emails and there in my in box was an email from my precious friend and the subject was "remission". Happy Beautiful Friday y'all .... Tuesday is coconut cream day & his wife's favorite, he stopped in to grab a slice & fills me in..... The treatment, that he had taken & had stopped was still in his body and by the Grace of God & the power of prayer & a pure miracle started working,.... He pulls out his phone and shares a beautiful picture of his kids and grand kids, all gathered around him with hands laid on him praying, praying for absolute healing of their daddy and grandpa.... I love this family .... I am not sure what "the rest of his story" is going to be, of course none of us know, but what I do know is in the matter of a few months I have experienced two families, one being mine, that have lost their moms to this disease and now have faced reality that one day their sole parent will not always be there & then experience how powerful prayer is and when you experience healing & his grace... As my precious friend was leaving, tears of joy flowing I said ... The saying up there has new meaning huh..." See how beautiful GOD has added one more day, not because you need it, but because someone might need you." Thanks for your prayers y'all !!

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.
