Having trouble remembering passwords?

Have you noticed that the need for passwords is increasing?  It seems that everything you do now requires some sort of password to access information.

I fear the day when I may need a password to open the refrigerator door, or turn my oven on!

Technology is on a march it seems, and every day things just get a little more complicated... and it seems to happen on a regular basis that you need to create a new password for this or that account or website.  It gets a little overwhelming keeping up with them sometimes!

Not long ago I got an email saying that someone had tried to log in to our bank account, so the account was locked, and I had to reset our password.  And so I did ...  and then a few days later... another message, account locked again and once again a new password needed to be created.

So all of this got me to thinking about how in the world are we supposed to keep up with all the different passwords that we need to have to access the myriad of accounts that continue to demand a "password"?

I was talking to my Aunt J one day about it, and she had a very wise suggestion.... so wise in fact, that I want to share it with you.  Maybe it will help you when you have run out of steam selecting passwords, that somehow either manage to be forgotten and need to be reset, or you need a new one, or whatever the case may be!

Here is an amazing solution!

... to use your favorite scripture passage!  Because the passwords usually require a capital letter, a special letter, and a number... a scripture passage will include all of those!

It is so simple, why didn't I think of it before?

Next time you are stumped for a password... use a scripture passage... it will include the special letter, the capital letter, and the numbers that you need to make the password police happy.  Best of all, in a stressful moment, you can quote that favorite passage to yourself, and not feel so frustrated with the advances of technology that demands these things of you!

I hope you enjoyed this simple tip today... to help keep the password police happy ... and that you don't end up feeling like this poor soul at the end of the day!

Have a blessed day :)
