I’m spoiled, you see, by the fact that they live next door, and I’m blessed to be part of the everyday lives of my twin almost 3-year-olds and their 7-year-old brother. (I also have another 1-year-old grandbuddy who […]

Polution Redeemed http://deboracoty.com/2018/06/polution-redeemed/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/06/polution-redeemed/#comments Thu, 07 Jun 2018 12:08:17 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4541 I was traipsing through the deep woods of the Smoky Mountains when I saw it.

A plastic bag, the kind a newspaper comes in, was apparently stuck in the branches of a tall rhododendron, one end flapping in the breeze like a […]

Milking It http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/milking-it/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/milking-it/#comments Thu, 31 May 2018 12:48:50 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4520 I recently saw a YouTube video featuring a young man who rehabbed a baby squirrel he found caught in a trap. Both the little squirrel’s arms were broken by the trap’s steel jaws and had to be amputated due to permanent nerve damage. But that didn’t stop the feisty furry firecracker; she never lost her […]

Extra Friendly Day http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/extra-friendly-day/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/extra-friendly-day/#comments Fri, 25 May 2018 12:04:13 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4517 My feet began to ache but I persevered as I made my way through the crowded mall, searching for the perfect hat. (This is a never-ending quest for me; it’s like trying to find that elusive perfect purse – I’m beginning to think the creature’s existence is simply a wicked fable.) At first, I thought […]

Granny Knows Best http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/4490/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/05/4490/#respond Wed, 09 May 2018 14:51:00 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4490 The other day as I was cleaning out a box of materials I’d collected (I save any funny or unusual articles I happen across in case they might come in handy one day for a book), I found a newspaper article about how the study of fossils has proven that male mammoths were prone to […]

Go, Girls! http://deboracoty.com/2018/04/go-girls/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/04/go-girls/#comments Wed, 25 Apr 2018 22:13:34 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4464 Don’t ya just love it when something new and fun jumps right out of the Bible and God-smacks you? I had one of those this week. It happened while I was reading Romans 16, a passage I’ve read countless times before – one of those rather mundane, drone, skim-through chapters of Paul’s greetings to folks […]

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!!” This from […]

Spring in Florida http://deboracoty.com/2018/03/spring-in-florida/ http://deboracoty.com/2018/03/spring-in-florida/#comments Sat, 10 Mar 2018 10:00:28 +0000 http://deboracoty.com/?p=4430 Okay, I’m tired of my northern friends complaining about shoveling snow and defrosting pipes in March. It’s not that I’m unsympathetic, but hey, we south of the Mason-Dixon demand equal grousing time. Granted, our nemesis isn’t icy and white. No, it’s brown and yellow. Although March temperatures are generally terrific (60-70 degrees), you can’t open […]

Her head was bowed nearly to her chest, shoulders shaking as tears dripped through quivering fingers trying desperately […]
