A family of chimney sweeps has taken up residence in my chimneys. I can hear the noisy critters as they call each other and I suppose that is their language. It is disturbing to my wife and I and I tried lighting a fire to get them to move. Boink! It didn’t work.

They have also taken up residence in my boat house too. I’ve tried everything I can think of to get them out of staying there with the same result. I’m too frustrated by their persistence because nothing works.

I was reading about squatters that are taking over homes and cannot be persuaded to leave. Frankly, I would go in with guns blazing and end up in prison or receive a plaque and the keys to the city for ridding the county of lawless bums. I suppose the latter would work in states like Mississippi but not in New York or L.A.

They are called squatters by the bleeding heart communist leaning media, and they seem to applaud this behavior. I’m of the opinion that no one should be living in a home unless they own it, pay rent, or gain permission to live their free of charge. But that would make too much sense and heaven forbid if we tread on someone’s “rights”. Sigh . . .

This reminds me of the devil. Once the devil has taken up residence he will be hard to remove. He will ignore, fight back, hunker down and fairly demand to be blasted out before he finally leaves. He will look for ways to return and squat once again unless you are smart and use your life to build something new.

God has bequeathed to each of us a wonderful life, filled with vast possibilities. We are meant to use all he has given us for our pleasure and enjoyment here on earth and for his glory now and in eternity. Waste nothing! Guard every inch that is yours. Build praise and thanksgiving and a humble heart on every acre and allot no room for squatters.

This old world is really turning the corner and heading into the dark with no help in sight. But be of good cheer because soon it will be over and God will right all of the wrongs in it.

Psalm 55:8
Night is coming for them, and nightmare— a nightmare they’ll never wake up from. God will make hash of these squatters, send them packing for good.
