When I first discovered Amazon, I was so impressed with the idea of being able to order just about anything from one place. This seemed like a great option to battling over parking spaces at the mall, waiting on line at stores, and feeling limited in buying options. In addition, as a Prime member, I appreciate the return policy at Amazon.
Because I have been an Amazon shopper for some time now, I have purchased items such as nail polish, fountains, pet supplies, clothing, ancient grains, laundry detergent, and much more. It is a very useful and most needed all-in-one on-line mall that has saved me from panic on many occasions when I have needed to order last minute items.
One afternoon, over lunch at my house, my friend and I were discussing how great we thought Amazon was, and I told her that I had found a great pair of jeans along with a fabulous blouse. She laughed, asking rhetorically, “Is there anything you don’t find on Amazon?” I said that I was still looking for the perfect man for her and that I would probably be able to find him on Amazon. And that’s when I hurried down the hallway and got my laptop. I opened it and clicked on Amazon.com, and my friend asked me what I was looking for. I said, “Let’s see if we can find you a great guy.” We laughed and began the search!
I typed the word “men” in the search window, but what came up was “beard growth.” We cracked up! I then typed in “single men,” and book options popped up. Then I entered “loving single men,” and more book choices appeared. I changed the search to “find me a husband” being sure to refine it to Prime only. A book popped up, entitled Please God, Find Me a Husband by Simone Lia. My friend and I looked at each other, surprised, and then she asked me whether I thought that was a sign from God. I told her that I think God was telling us that even though Amazon is a huge virtual marketplace with lots to offer, when it comes to finding love, we won’t be able to find it from there or anywhere else but in God. I then added, “But if you could find it there, it’s best if you are a Prime member because if you needed to make an exchange or return the man, it’s easy peasy with Prime.”
We laughed at ourselves and decided to look for some fair trade tea instead and leave the matchmaking to God.
