Good Morning!! Have you ever experienced a person in your life making a promise to you and keeping it always? If you have been married, yes there are promises made... But not always kept. When you become a parent you promise to protect and love. I often think about a promise that was made to me over 20 years ago.... My mom had just passed away and my family gathered at the house that night to eat pizza, funny how you remember these sorts of things. I made my way to the apartment in the back of the house, maybe trying to find comfort in the hospital bed that had been place there, for my memaw and then my mom. My dad found me sitting there.. tears streaming down my face I tell him.."I still need a mom", he took my hands and promised me "I will be your mom and dad". He has kept that promise for all these years... We have had talks that would make most dads uncomfortable. When hardships have come my way... He has always been there, when I have made bad choices he still loved me. Funny, when Shelby was taking a job in Lubbock 17 years ago, I was devastated to leave my dad, " why can't I stay with you and see Shelby on the weekend", of course in his gentle way he told me that is not how things work but we can see each other every weekend if you want & again he kept that promise. You see it's easy in away for me to understand the unconditional love and promises of our heavenly father because I have had the amazing opportunity to experience that in my life.., but for so many others they do not have that from their dad, I was talking to a girl the other day,that had it rough growing up, her dad did not love unconditionally and her mistakes were still brought up, My heart was sad for her, I told her she receives that kind of love from our heavenly father. He made a promise to us thousands of years ago and has kept that promise..he loves unconditionally and when we confess to him our sins he doesn't bring them back up again, they are done. His promise to love, guide & comfort us is there.Happy Tuesday y'all .... I am so thankful for the promises the Lord has given and never broken, curl up in his arms y'all and have a talk with him bask in his love for you:)
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.
