There are some house pets that you would prefer not to have and we recently had one of those move in on us. How he ever got into the house was a mystery, but there he was!!
It was a tiny lizard, just a small one like the one who lives under my hydrangea bush.

One of our Labrador dogs has very long hair and we find globs every so often on the rug or in the kitchen. So I reached for what seemed to be a clump of dog hair, and when it quickly moved and skimmed across the room, I screamed quite loudly from the surprise.
Coming to the rescue, my husband helped me move some items in the corner but it scurried even faster into our office and under my desk.
I know the little creature must have been terribly frightened with all the hollering and shouting, “There he is.”
No way would my husband attack and move the stacks of books and paper under my desk, so he did the next best thing. - - Hubby placed a small saucer of water under my desk and we rested.
The next morning we could see he must have taken a bath and enjoyed the water. By noon we saw him again, and this time we cornered him under a small stand.
Grabbing a kitchen towel, we cautiously moved the stand while my husband lunged forward and with a sweeping motion caught him in the towel.
Gently my hubby took him out side and re-introduced him to the hydrangea bush. We were all happy and I know that little guy was too.
In life there are things that happen that catch us by surprise! Some times we yell and scream and other times we worry and fret and are fearful.
When stuff happens and life is frightful, it is always time to trust in God.
He has not promised us a life of ease with no trouble, but he does promise to be with us in what ever are the circumstances. In time, you may be able to sweep out, that which is bothering you, and enjoy peace again.
You may need to take action and put your elbow to work getting rid of the problem, but God will give you wisdom and strength to get it done.
