Where we live has an over abundance of crawling creatures; one that we hate and one that is an unwanted necessity. Many of us may want to ask Jehovah why mosquitoes were created but I admit to being just as curious why there are so many cockroaches.
Our home does not have many cockroaches and they seem to arrive shortly after a heavy rain. Maybe they’re just looking for a dry place to spend the night. Whatever the situation, the cockroaches that knock on our door are large.
We call them Godzilla.
1 – informal A particularly enormous example of something.
2 – fierce or frightening person or thing.
Yes, cockroaches can be big enough to be scary and nothing seems to keep Godzilla away.
Another crawling creature that frequents our neighborhood and home appears to be one that Jehovah created to help balance nature and the abundance of cockroaches.
Decades ago we came across a cute little lizard who could be spotted chasing smaller Godzillas. We called him Fred. Maybe Fred was female. If so, Fredericka; but Fred still works.
Godzilla is scary and moves quickly. Fred is hungry and patient. Somehow there is always a balance. Whenever more Godzillas show up, more Freds are soon to follow. Whenever the Godzilla population drops, the Freds take a vacation.
It’s the circle of life.
