The Title to this post is not about the verb, Jog. I definitely have not entered into that world of exercise...I will say yet because one day I may take up jogging...heheheheh...Still nothing like Clogging.
*But anyways back to the post*
I have been reflecting recently when writing my last blog; and it has sparked an interest to take a deeper jog down memory lane. I remember years and years ago I used to do blogging with a twist called Xanga...Back then I thought of it as an online journal, which is basically the definition of blogging. Tonight I actually googled my old Xanga of Teekup83, and I actually found it!! You guys who had xanga should try it :-) Teekup takes me way back to college days-- my roomies used that name because that was the name I used for my AIM addiction. NO I was not addicted to Toothpaste! I was obsessed with typing to people over the internet as instant messaging...sometimes my own roomates would chit chat through our computer, that truly is where I learned to type! Really these days it is kinda of like text messaging...lol Back then we didn't have touchscreen anything..WOW technology has definitely advanced! Anyways I have copied and pasted one of the entries because it is amazing how it ties into to today.

Life is Good and God is Great!
Well I don't know if all of you know..but as of January 6th I put in my two week notice at Texas Roadhouse. WHY..you ask, that is a very difficult question to answer...but to sum it up I am being obedient to God. He wants me to move on and use me in another area. WHERE..you ask, that is another difficult question to answer..because honestly I haven't the slightest idea, that is the fun part though. I am definately trusting my Lord with all of my heart and walking by faith. It definately is not comfortable, but that makes us grow more and become stronger. So yeah that is a major change that I am undergoing as you read this, but life brings oranges make orange juice (basically make the best situation outta what you got) Now on the other hand...I have an absolutely outta this world amazing wonderful caring boyfriend that is outstanding! WOW, He definately is my first boyfriend and boy o boy is he ever an awesome guy! Head over heels for this man of God!...heheheheh...
But yeah that is what is going on now in my life, definately completely different than 4 months ago when I was not as involved in West Ridge, didn't have Sunshine ( THE most awesomest Chic...my best friend...I love you girl!!), didn't have this new idea of jobs, and surely didn't have Bubba ( The bestest guy after Gods own heart...My boyfriend!)
Yeah so that is the breakdown of what is going on NOW in my life! I definately will miss TRH..but I will definately be back to visit everyone, don't think they can get rid of me that fast, aint gonna happen! Well All of you have a wonderful week..and don't forget that it is kids night tomorrow the theme is Hillbilly...if you are a server that is looking at my site, shoo I don't know I just thought I would add that in there!
I look back at when I wrote that and truly I didn't know what the future was. And I am SOO glad that I decided to be obedient to the Lord or I wouldn't be in the place that I am in now. It is true I did quit my Texas Roadhouse Job as a Marketing Director back in January of 2005, because the Lord removed the JOY! That is how I knew God was shewwing me on.
I remember at that same time I learned a very important lesson from my brother Brian. He doesn't know that God was using him to teach me, which I think that is awesome in itself! Brian has a little daughter and back then Madison was wee little. But Brian was playing with Madison and he was throwing her up in the air where he let go of her and then seconds later caught her.
