I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one – This time with the theme ‘Sports’! I’m sure we all have our favourite sports, or ones we’re not so keen on, or maybe even ones we don’t understand. As usual I’ll throw the names of some sports at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read the name of the sport.

So here goes…

  1. Croquet
  2. Rugby
  3. Badminton
  4. Squash
  5. Skiing
  6. 10 pin bowling
  7. Athletics
  8. Baseball
  9. Curling
  10. Gymnastics

wordsSo how did you get on with those sports? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. England
  2. Muddy
  3. Roof
  4. Wall
  5. Broken
  6. Chicken
  7. Speed
  8. Rounders
  9. Scotland
  10. Balance

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!

What do we really need in life?

Food, water, air, clothes, a roof over our head, money, love, a friend?

Some of those things are necessities for us to live, but some are not essential they are just things that would make life a little easier or happier for us.

Maybe all we really need is God!

Maybe all we really need is to believe!

Matthew 6:25 (The Passion Translation)

This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing?

What do you focus on in your life? Is your life centred around possessions and goods, or is there more to your life than that?

There is definitely more to life than our possessions – possessions may provide short term happiness, but they don’t provide the peace and contentment that I’m sure we all desire.

The peace and contentment we all desire can only be found in God. God is more than everything we need. He offers us really peace, contentment and happiness, if we simply trust Him.

Stuck!

Well yesterday at work I got stuck in one of our lifts for about half an hour!

I had been out for a walk at lunch time and on my return to our building felt a little tired so thought I’d get the lift rather than walking up three flights of stairs. I got in the lift and pressed the button for floor three, the lift went up to the third floor, but then the doors didn’t open. I tried going to each of the other floors again but still the doors wouldn’t open. I phoned one of my colleagues in my office and the started events to get the engineer to come and get me out.

When I did get out the lift, I was told I was very calm, which I was. It wasn’t the biggest of lifts and was absolutely roasting, but I’m not bothered by enclosed spaces, and ultimately knew I was in no danger etc. I was glad I was returning from my lunch and had a bottle of fruit juice with me, as I ended up drinking nearly all of it in the lift because it was so hot!

It’s funny I never really thought about what it would be like to be stuck in a lift before, but it was actually ok. Mind you, as one of my colleagues said it might not have ok if the lift had been full. Yeah stuck in a full lift with no room to move, does not sound like fun and would have been incredibly hot, as it was bad enough today with just me in the lift!

Well that’s one more thing I can I have now experienced, being stuck in a lift!

If you see someone in need, do you stop and help or do you walk past, or look the other way and keep walking?

Maybe you feel you’re too busy to stop and help others, but what if we all consider ourselves ‘too busy’ to help? We can’t assume someone else will take the time to stop and help, so we need to make the time to help.

Stopping to help someone doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to have to give up loads of your time, as it can be the simple act of asking someone if they’re ok that helps someone; or carrying a bag of shopping to for an older person, to their car; or giving a homeless person a sandwich and a hot drink.

We need to stop rushing around at 100 miles an hour, and take time out to look around ourselves, and really see those who are in need. We can then take time to make a difference, by helping those who need help.

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one – This time with a theme, Music!

So as usual I’m going to throw some words at you, and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. Plastic bag
  2. Chicken
  3. Sunglasses
  4. Quote
  5. Thermometer
  6. Coach
  7. Gas
  8. Tablet
  9. Magnify
  10. Speaker

wordsSo how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. 5p
  2. Chinese
  3. Red
  4. Insurance
  5. Different
  6. Travel
  7. Condemned
  8. Mum
  9. Sight
  10. Loud

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Over the last few months I’ve done a number of posts called ‘Slogans’. Today it’s time for another one!

In my previous “Slogans” posts, I mentioned how we all see and hear many adverts on a daily basis via advertising hoardings or adverts on the radio, television  magazines and newspapers.

Today again I want to give you some more slogans to see how many of the companies/organisations associated with them you can identify from their slogans?

  1. Refreshes The Parts Other Beers Cannot Reach
  2. A hazelnut in every bite
  3. Has it changed your life yet?
  4. We are one
  5. You only get an ‘OO’ with…
  6. How do you eat yours
  7. Maybe She’s Born With It, Maybe It’s…
  8. Snap! Crackle! Pop!
  9. The power of cool
  10. The drive of your life

So that’s the slogans, how many do you think you know?

advertising

So here’s the answers…

  1. Heineken
  2. Topic
  3. Compaq
  4. Calvin Klein CK one
  5. Typhoo
  6. Cadbury’s crème egg
  7. Maybelline
  8. Kellogs Rice Crispies
  9. Davidoff Cool Water
  10. Peugeot

There were a few tricky ones in there, so if you got them all, well done!

I’ll be doing a few more of these in the coming weeks/months, so keep watching the adverts and remembering the slogans!

This is the recipe I follow for life – Just like a recipe for baking or making food, even if you follow a recipe to the letter, it doesn’t always turn out as you expect. The difference with the life recipe is that even when it doesn’t work out as expected, God is always at the centre of everything that happens, so he continues to guide and teach me through every aspect of life.

This is the best recipe you will ever have for life, and it’s free! So I share it with you today so you too can experience life at it’s best.
