Imagine you had no constraints. i.e. Money is no issue, you have no time constraints, no responsibilities, no health issues. In other words you can go where you want, what you want, when you want. So what would you do, where would you go?

Would you go on holiday?

Perhaps you’d buy yourself a new car or a new house?

Maybe you’d learn to do something you’ve never had the time or the money to do before, such as learning to fly a plane?

Even if you have unlimited resources, it doesn’t mean they will last forever. So whether you have little money or lots of money, have lots of health concerns or as healthy as you could be, have family or work responsibilities or on your own and unemployed, we still need to look after what we have.

We need to take care of ourselves, our possessions, our friends and family, and make sure we use our time wisely.

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!

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. 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. Garage
  2. Can
  3. Boss
  4. Associate
  5. Orchid
  6. Frame
  7. Bed
  8. Red
  9. Money
  10. Freezer

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. Car
  2. Recycle
  3. Accommodate
  4. Join
  5. Pink
  6. Crime
  7. Sleep
  8. Rose
  9. Bank
  10. Cold

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!

There are times when each of us find ourselves in need of help or rescuing, so we probably call one of the following:

  • Police
  • Ambulance or doctor
  • Fire brigade
  • Coastguard or lifeboat
  • Car breakdown service

We put our lives and our future in their hands, in the knowledge that they will do what is best for us.

When it comes to God we shouldn’t wait until we’re in trouble before we turn to Him, instead we should be letting Him rescue us before we even get into trouble.

This song by Rend Collective sums this up really well – here’s them singing Rescuer

There is good news for the captive, good news for the shamed
There is good news for the one who walked away
There is good news for the doubter, the one religion failed
For the Good Lord has come to seek and save

He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)

He is beauty for the blind man, riches for the poor
He is friendship for the one the world ignores
He is pasture for the weary, rest for those who strive
For the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life
Yes the Good Lord is the way, the truth, the life (Hey!)

He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)

So come and be chainless
Come and be fearless
Come to the foot of Calvary
‘Cause there is redemption
For every affliction
Here at the foot of Calvary
So come and be chainless (Come and be chainless)
Come and be fearless (Come and be fearless)
Come to the foot of Calvary
‘Cause there is redemption
For every affliction (For every affliction)
Here at the foot of Calvary

Oh He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
He’s our rescuer (Hey!)
We are free from sin forevermore (We are free indeed)
Oh how sweet the sound (Hey!)
Oh how grace abounds (Hey!)
We will praise the Lord our rescuer
We will praise the Lord our rescuer (Hey!)

Grateful

I read this on a friend’s timeline on Facebook recently, and wanted to share it will you all

It’s very true isn’t, we get so caught up at time with all the latest technology, gadgets, cars etc, that we often can forget to be thankful for what we already possess.

There are so many people in this world who don’t even have a fraction of the possessions we have, yet still we want more. Maybe it’s time to give more to others rather than keep buying more and more for ourself.

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. 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. Bottle
  2. Bacon
  3. Peg
  4. Smart watch
  5. Soup
  6. Lyrics
  7. Basket
  8. Ripple
  9. Wheel
  10. Framewords

So 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. Cough
  2. Eggs
  3. Clothes
  4. Blue
  5. Tomato
  6. Song
  7. Shopping
  8. Chocolate
  9. Car
  10. Crime

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!

When you need help with a burst pipe in your house, you can a plumber.

When you feel ill and need medical help, you go to a doctor or a hospital.

When you’re car breaks down and you need help fixing it, you take your car to a garage.

How about when you’re going through some difficult times in your life, who do you call?

God alone can give us the strength we need to face each day, and face each trouble head on.

We all have things which annoy us, some trivial, some quite serious. So today I want to share with you some of the trivial things that annoy me…they’re listed in no particular order:

  1. People who treat you like a child just because you’re younger than them.
  2. Those who park on double-yellow lines just to save themselves have to walk a few extra meters to the nearest parking space.
  3. When less qualified or experienced individuals thinks they know better than you, even although you’ve been there and done something many times before.
  4. When the weather forecasters say we’re going to have fantastic dry warm weather, but then discover they’re actually talking about the south of England, and our weather is actually going to be the complete opposite!
  5. Individuals who drop litter rather than put it in a litter bin that’s only a few meters away.

Do any of these annoyances sound familiar to you?

Yes, all the above things annoy me, but most of time I manage to stay quiet when they happen and just observe and say or do nothing as I know it’s just me being me!

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, and today it’s time for another one. 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. Breakfast
  2. Relationship
  3. Plant
  4. Box
  5. Slipper
  6. Box
  7. Vinyl
  8. Teapot
  9. Condemn
  10. Graphitewords

So 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. Cereal
  2. Friend
  3. Seed
  4. Delivery
  5. Winter
  6. Tick tock
  7. 78
  8. Yorkshire
  9. Fire

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

In a world where people are scared to reach out and help others in case someone gets the wrong idea; where people don’t trust anyone they don’t know; and  where people don’t trust anyone who doesn’t share the same beliefs or religion as them; I want you to think about whether you would stop and help, or run and ignore in the following situations:

  1. You’re driving along a road in your car. There’s a couple of other cars about and you see only one or pedestrians at most. Then you notice a pedestrian walking along the pavement suddenly collapses to the ground for no apparent reason…What do you do stop and help or run and ignore?
  2. You’re in a busy supermarket at the checkout. There’s a young mother in front of you with a child who seems to be pushing the mother’s patience to it limits. When the checkout assistant tells the mother how much her shopping comes to, she realises she’s £2’s short of the money she needs… Do you offer to pay the £2 for her, or do you pretend you didn’t here the conversation the mother was having with the checkout assistant?
  3. You’re walking through a busy shopping area and come across a young child crying their eyes out, and they seem  to be on their own…Do you approach the child and ask them if they are ok, or if they’ve lost their mum or dad, do you go find an official from one of the shops to come and help, or do you just keep walking sure that the child ‘will be ok’?
  4. A homeless person sitting on a local street asks you if you can spare some money for some food…Do you give them some money, go buy them some food and take it back to them, or just ignore them and keep walking?
  5. You find a £20 note lying in an aisle of a shop…Do you hand it into the customer service desk in the shop, or do you pocket the money hoping no-one saw you?

What were your answers? Were they honest answers?

If you’re answers aren’t what they should be, I hope that next time you find yourself in that situation, you stop and think for a moment, and then make what is ‘the right’ decision.
