Treasure hunting is a popular pastime for many people. In the present world, it is more pleasant than it was centuries ago. Metal detectors now come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
This is the story of a couple that found something incredible while treasure hunting. They had absolutely no idea how it would change the course of their life.
Ryan and Lisa, a young couple, shared a favorite activity. They did treasure hunting during their off time. One day their metal detector started beeping very loud and for a very long time. They realized they were about to make a fortune.
Surely, Lisa had not expected to find anything valuable on her first try. As they began digging their hearts started to beat faster. They were on the verge of reaching the object.
They were trying not to build up too much hope. Of course, it’s possible that the detector picked up something like a nail or a coin by accident.
The couple’s first find was an old coin, but it wasn’t the only valuable item they unearthed.
They weren’t sure if this coin was valuable, but they knew they were holding a piece of history. Ryan and Lisa continued walking in search of new locations for treasure hunting.
After a few minutes, the metal detector started to beep again. Was there really a treasure hidden?
They started digging the area. They could feel that it was something huge. Ryan asked Lisa to start recording because he felt it could be something special.
This thing was hidden near a rock which made it hard to uncover. Valuable objects are usually well hidden.
“This could be the find of a lifetime!” Ryan happily said. Lisa was so excited, “Careful, babe,” she reminded.
After a few minutes of digging, Ryan felt something hard.
The box was large and intriguing. There was no denying that there was something special inside. Lisa had no idea how drastically her life would change after this discovery.
Inside the box, they found letters. Along with that, there were some engraved words on the box. When Ryan started to read it, Lisa was shocked.
The letters and numbers represented a date and a message. Lisa realized that it was a Bible verse.
Ryan always carried a bible with him and opened it right away.
Ryan and Lisa were devout Christians, and they took it as a divine sign. Ryan discovered the first passage, Matthew 13:44.
Ryan read the verse, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.” Lisa had the impression that this was not a coincidence.
Next was Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
After Ryan had read this, he took out a small box.
It was an engagement ring! Ryan was about to propose to Lisa. She was completely taken aback.
“Will you marry me?” asked Ryan and excitedly waited for the answer.
Lisa replied with a passionate YES! The pair was ecstatic. Ryan was overjoyed to hear Lisa say “yes,” and Lisa was overjoyed since her wish had come true.
The ring was a real treasure because it was an heirloom diamond Ryan had inherited from his grandma.
“Lisa, you’re the treasure that I found in a field, and I want to give over everything that I have so that I can have you,” said Ryan.
The proposal was captured on tape and went viral. It was very unique and wonderful. Ryan did an incredible act that every girl dreams of.
Lisa was the most valuable treasure Ryan had found in his life. It was so romantic! The video received a lot of attention.
Thousands of comments and congrats were left under the video.
The pair were brought together by their love of treasure hunting. It is a story that will continue to be popular for a long time.
Perhaps this fantastic idea will inspire some men.
