Good Morning!! I have seen the healing hands of God..... when I think of this song many thoughts go through my mind but healing of the heart is first and foremost. Last year I was talking with a precious regular and the talk turns to his daughters pregnancy, it was difficult with some problems he then shares the journey of loosing his teenage son..... the heartache and turmoil he and his wife have been through, I listened with tears streaming down my cheeks ,never would I have guessed his journey......as long as I had known him he seemed..."whole". I was sitting at the Idalou baseball field last year when I met a gentlmen through private message on FB....seeing my check-in he tells of loosing his precious son, his name in memory of on the score board, I have since met this man in person and if I had not known about his journey...I would have thought he was "whole". I have another precious regular that is absolutely precious....she usually has her grandchildren in tow and she is full of joy with a beautiful smile always spread across her face.....a couple of years ago she lost her adult daughter....if I did not know her journey I would have thought she was "whole". Last week I received a private message from a friend/regular to pray for the family of a young co-worker that had died, she mentioned it was her co-worker and another young man. I had been praying for these families..... my heart absolutely broken for these parents. I receive word a few days ago, I knew the other young man, he played sports with my kids and I instantly felt sick to my stomach and my thoughts went to his parents. Happy Beautiful Thursday yall....I have experienced sadness and turmoil but not this.... I have no comprehension of this anguish, all of these parents have a connection that none of us want to be apart of......Life is beautiful and when I look at these precious parents they also share absolute FAITH in our heavenly Father and that is why I "thought" they were "whole". I know there has been a lot of anger, millions of tears and a broken heart that seems would never heal...... life forever changed but ALL of their lives have moved forward....different. I have seen the "healing hands of God"....because that is the only way these parents are still standing and functioning. Whatever is going on...the turmoil, the sadness, loss, the chaos, our heavenly Father is there with his perfect peace and healing hands. To get a glimpse of these amazing parents and their grief brings hope for all of us grieving. There are "new parents" that are now apart of this coonection. My prayer is absolute perfect peace for them on this journey.... and may they experience the Healing hands of God.......

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.
