How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.”
“He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever.”

Invader alert! Unwanted visitors have entered my domain and are destroying my hard-earned work. I have tried everything: placing barriers to keep them out;
depriving them of their food supply; destroying their shelters; sending
armed-to-the-teeth patrols to drive or take them away, but they keep coming back and in greater numbers than before! A new tactic must be available somewhere, somehow.
I suppose I could just give up. Or, I might deter their pilgrimages with poisons or sharp, sticky things that hurt them. I could even release predators into mydomain. I sincerely doubt any of these remedies would work, however, because their needs are too important.But wait! Current research reveals what might be the best approach. Provide them places of comfort and convenience. Feed them. Make their habitat a home for their families. When their needs are met, they will be happy and thankful. Maybe then they will allow my domain to respond to my beautification efforts.
After all, squirrels are not evil creatures. God made all creatures, great and small; even we humans. Why? Because of His unending, never failing, all-inclusive, no strings attached unconditional love. Love for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Let us plant seeds of love–must be the best way to go.
Dear God, thank you for your wonderful creation. Send your Holy Spirit to help us to love your creation through our thoughts and deeds. Amen.
