Cloudy With A Chance Of Encouragement {More Than Fine}

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:11


Meet Brent’s lunch box.

This puppy is jam-packed with nutrients via a turkey sandwich, cottage cheese, peaches, a protein bar and a honey crisp apple. All compliments of yours truly.  {Que – back pat}

But if you look closely, there are a couple of things a bit “off” with this picture.

First, Brent will be sporting a Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs lunch sack to the office today.  Can I just say, I am impressed with my man’s security?  I am super impressed he can carry a cartoon lunch bag and still embody all things masculine.   Such. A. Stud.

And second, his cottage cheese looks to have expired.


Mamaw always said those dates are wrong.  I am bankin’ on that one today.

But surely all is redeemed by those hot pink words of encouragement on that little note there.

Encourage {parakaleō}  STRENGTHEN. EXHORT.

Do you realize that YOU have the power to strengthen your spouse today with a word of encouragement?  God wants to use you as His mouthpiece to SPEAK LIFE and EXHORT your husband or wife.  

Take five seconds…write a note.  Send a text.  Call just to say “I love you.”  Maybe a spontaneous lunch date!  Or fix his favorite dinner!

Just because it is a cloudy day here in Tennessee, doesn’t mean there can’t be a chance of encouragement.  

How can you STRENGTHEN your spouse today and press on to a marriage that is “more than fine”?

One thought on “Cloudy With A Chance Of Encouragement {More Than Fine}

  1. Ah, Tennessee, how I miss it, and hearing “mamaw.” Not heard out here in the “Great Northwest.” My late husband and I used to hide notes to each other in various places, especially if one of us was going to be away for longer than a day. I kept one he hid for me, and it’s on the back of his picture that is always with me. My husband doesn’t mind me carrying that picture, thankfully.

I means so much to hear from you!
