Welcome back! When we last left the O'Hurleys, they had just returned from their honeymoon and prepared to settle into their assigned-by-gender household tasks. Let's check in, shall we?
Mary-Anne woke up early (I'm talking Maxwell early. She was up by 4.) to do devotionals in her prayer journal. I'm sure she was cheerfully writing about how grateful she is for her new headship!
While she did that, her wonderful husband was outside catching fish in the stream right behind their house. I hope they both like fish, because they're going to be eating a lot of it!
The Lord laid it on Mary-Anne's heart to plant fruits and vegetables in her garden to sell at the local farmers market. What a wonderful opportunity to serve others,
and even make a little extra money!
After spending the morning in the garden, Mary-Anne went inside to fix fish tacos for lunch.
Some sweet neighbors came over to welcome them to the neighborhood. What a precious time of fellowship they had!
It looks like Mark just told Liberty where she's going when she dies.
Fortunately, Mary-Anne swooped in to lighten up the conversation.
After the guests left, Mary-Anne started her newest project: a children's book series called Amazing Grace about a little girl who goes on amazing adventures with her favorite biblical characters. She feels so blessed to have the opportunity to contribute to her family's
Dinner that evening consisted of leftover fish tacos, and a little romance.
Having grown up being taught that video games were the Devil's work, Mark purposed to make video games his personal ministry and create wholesome games that teach children the ways of the Lord.
I planned to have them get started on their first blessing that evening, but they fell asleep instead. I think they're onto me.
And there you have it! A Sunday in the life of the newlyweds. I promise the next part will be more exciting. Until next time!
