Barbie and Ken


It felt like all the walls were crashing down upon her.
Upon her heart.
How could this happen? 
How could He chose her?
What's wrong with me?
Moving through Target she hid in the Barbie toy aisle,
By the Barbie Dream House

Her dream, well once her dream,
with her Ken,
but now her Ken, well her once was Ken, is now her Ken..
overwhelming right?
She grabbed a Malibu Barbie and hid it to cover her face.
She heard them coming, giggling about their "striped apartment decor"
bleh.
I wanted apartment decor from Target...
Hold still..freeze.
They walk past.
whew. Thank God.
She catches a glimpse of them rear view as they walk down the aisle to the home decor section,
she was even holding a purple teddy bear in her arms.
He bought me a pink teddy bear.
How could he just throw me away like that?
Her light brown hair was soo shiny, so wavy and golden. As if she was straight from a Gainer Fruits commercial.
She felt her puffy twist out under her hat and sighed in slight embarrassment.
And she was so stylish. Her dark green blazer, her black leggings and her combat boots.
And I'm just in a t-shirt and jeans. embarrassment hid her further.
Maybe I should have compromised. Maybe I should have moved in with him and had sex, then I would have a purple teddy bear, nice hair and a cute outfit.
She knew she shouldn't have but she had too

OF COURSE THEY WOULD POST A INSTAGRAM SELFIE IN TARGET, WITH THE PURPLE TEDDY BEAR! AND GET 368 LIKES in 10 MINUTES!
10 MINUTES! 
We used to get almost that many likes.
About to spiral in a pit of despair until she heard...
What are you doing?
Huh? She looked down to see a 6 year old girl in a purple dress standing in the Barbie aisle with her.
What do you mean?
What are you doing? She sounded so mature.
Umm, looking at this Malibu Barbie doll to buy for my cousin,,err, sister, for um Christmas.
It's May.
I'm an early shopper.
You don't have a sister.
How do you know?
You're hiding from your ex boyfriend aren't you?
Whatttttt? noo... wait, how did you know. who told you?
I have 3 sisters who drag me around the mall all the time.
Hmmm. makes sense.
What you gave up for God is not a lost. Count it all joy. He sees your sacrifice and has someone in store for you. But remember, HE is the prize. Fall in love with Him. 

In shock at how God used this 6 year old to speak to her, she couldn't say anything but the tears in her eyes spoke the thank you.

FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM.

"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers." Psalms 1:1-3
