The Great Care Of Farming

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Careful.”

I could post photos on this one a thousand times over. If you have seen a photo of a person, that should say, ‘handle with care’. And yet, many people don’t.

However, the photo I have chosen was taken one year ago today. I have the heart of a farmer! I could easily spend all day, every day in the fields plowing, tilling, planting or harvesting. Sadly, not even actual farmers get to do that, there is so much more that goes into farming.

Last fall though I was granted the opportunity to ride along with a friend who was doing some field work for a local farmer who owns many acres. About two hours into the day the farmer said, “you didn’t think you were coming out here to just ride along did ya?”

After this photo was taken I did not leave the driver’s seat for the rest of the day. It was truly a memorable experience, but the best part was being able to finish up the evening and drive home! Which resulted in this photo:

It takes great care to drive a machine that is worth more than ten times your current net worth in monetary means. Crashing? Not an option. What to do when we meet oncoming traffic with a rig that big? I learned that too! Pull off the road into a field and let the traffic go by. There is absolutely no room for anyone else with this machine on the highway. 

It is hard to believe that these photos were taken one year ago today! I’ll probably never have another experience like that again, but if I do, I assure you, it will be with great care.

    1. That is truly a good question!!! The machinery in the photo has a worth of around $400,000, whereas my worth is priceless. Human beings are far too undervalued by most. However, Jesus Christ gives us a value far above anything of this Earth.
