Every day my husband and I seem to send one another something funny or news related over email that we run across while at work.
Today, I opened my email from him to receive this lovely valentine. What a fun surprise! I understand, only those of us involved in agriculture and construction can truly appreciate this note! But I loved it so much, I have to share it!
How neat is this?!?
I must admit though, it’d more than it really appears at first. I am a fan of puns, and I think this definitely is a moment of puns. Think about it. To really dig someone, means you really need to work to get to know them! And an excavator can do so much work, and dig deeper and deeper into the soil.
Example. My father is planning on tiling some of our fields. (Basic explanation for those who don’t know, this is putting large piping in the ground for water to drain into when a field is flooded. It prevents grain loss when flooding occurs.) To do this, he first needs to plan where the tile will go, then use an excavator or backhoe to dig in and open up where the piping will go.
This is just like a relationship. We need to dig into those we are close to if we are really to get to know them. And to know the Lord better, we really need to dig into His Word. Not only that, but just like tiling…we need to make a plan and stick to it. Just because we don’t feel like we know someone after trying for a few days, weeks or months…we need to continue to dig.
“For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joins and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” -Hebrews 4:12

That’s all for now! Just wanted to let you know, I really dig you! 😉
