I am painting the interior of my home in new bold colors. It needs some touching up here and there and I want to change some colors schemes. Golds, reds, and greens are going to be used throughout the house and will add freshness and a new look.

Change is good and we all need updating in so many different ways. Life has one constant that can be counted on and that is change. Life changes by the moment and affects every dimension of our beings. We all get into routs too often and have difficulty getting out. 

I have changed hair styles, reading patterns, eating habits, TV habits, and now am changing things in the interior of my house. It is time and it will be good.

Terry and Rebecca along with Randy, Rebecca's son-in-law, are all coming to the big painting party. Several years back I helped Terry paint the interior of his house and now he is returning the favor. Rebecca is just being a kind, good sister-in-law. Randy is just a good guy and wants to help his uncle.

Years back we all gathered at Terry and Rebecca's mom and dad's house and painted the exterior of their house. It took a couple of days or so to do it and we all had a ball. It was lots of fun and we helped the Roberts and saved some money for them.

Helping each other is what life is all about. You feel good to get a task done and when family helps everyone feels better.

Watch out for the paint. It starts flying on those walls soon.


  1. Milton,

    Please share before and after photos and photos of the painting party. Change is good. I am so happy that the Lord is blessing you and your family.

  2. Have fun making a "nest" for you and Wanda!!!


  3. Hey Dad! When we can have a painting party at my house? My walls desparately need new paint!

  4. Dad, I can't wait to see. It sounds beautiful, what you're going to do.

    What a blessing uncle Terry, aunt Becky and Randy are helping you paint. I wish I could be there, I know you guys will have a lot of fun and good laughs. I remember those days when the family would come together and help paint. Those are some of my most vivid childhood memories. I also remember when all the Dykes would get together and help rake Granny and Granddaddy's HUGE yard. I cherish those memories. It's funny how the most simple things stand out in a child's mind. Those simple acts taught me so much about love.

    I love you and I'm so proud of you.

  5. Has it been sad to change the color?

  6. Hey Pastor Milton, sounds like things are going to get messy! Remember you can put vaseline around the window members on the glass and keep the pait from having to be scraped, at least thats what they tell me. Wood is my thing, not paint my wife Janice takes the brush away from mee, so as not to get a Picasso on the wall! Tell Pastor Terry I will be looking fo paint under his fingernails Sunday, and one more thing, Randy IS a good guy, if you were to Google good guy his name ougt to come up. Tell him to say Hi to Robin. We are still his biggest fans.
    Take care and God bless. May your brush be blessed with ease and your rollers be given wings, my friend.
