What’s the Password?

Enter with the password: “Thank you!”
Make yourselves at home, talking praise.
Thank him. Worship him.

For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.

~ Psalm 100:4-5

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought;
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
~ G.K. Chesterton

    Praising and thanking Him is the main focus of life… from now through eternity. Thanking would truly be my “password”…

    We are learning the way to ease stress is to give hearty praise. This changes the way we think, the way we act. Indeed, the password to satisfaction
