Good Morning!! Typical Wednesday.... I was running late. As soon as I leave my house I call the grill, & get a list together of the supplies I need from Walmart. Hummm the only words I can say about Walmart.... it makes me crazy. I have been going into the one on Q several times a week for 5 years, it is actually not to bad early in the morning....it is usually me, the over night stockers and either homeless people or people that are just getting off work. I have my two favorite cashiers, they are kind and caring. I was frustrated with myself for running late and I rushed through the store to get my needed supplies. Always there is only 1 lane open.... as I approach the lane there is a line and now I am really frustrated. I hear my sweet cashier and the others in line carrying on a conversation...oh mylanta people I am LATE!!!While I was standing there sulking I started listening..... The conversation? one of the ladies had cancer and she was on a new treatment...the other lady soaking in everything she said because someone she loved was facing the same thing. My sulking immediatly stopped and besides listening ,my heart was embracing the fellowship of these strangers that had just met. The words out the mouth of the cancer patient..... "God is so Good and if he chooses to heal me I will shout his healing from the roof tops and if not... that is his plan for me". WOW in the middle of Walmart I am hearing her praise our heavenly father even though she is not well. Happy Wednesday yall...I am so thankful for running late this morning, I had an amazing opportunity to witness our heavenly fathers amazing love. I was able to listen and learn from a total stranger....ya know when I woke up late I never thought this was how my morning was going to be... her faith was unwavering, I am so thankful for his plan !!!
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.
