Spilt Milk

Good morning!

Spilt milk.

As you know, I work with preschoolers.  This past month brought an art project of utmost creativity to many of Building B’s classrooms.  It began with the teacher reading a very BIG book entitled, It Looked Like Spilt Milk.

“Sometimes it looks like an ice cream cone but its not an ice cream cone. Sometimes it looked like spilt milk, but it wasn’t spilt milk. It was just a cloud in the sky. ”


That got the creative juices flowing so to speak. Then she poured a small amount of white paint in the center of a big folded piece of blue construction paper. Each child squished and smashed their artwork to their personal liking until they were opened to see their unique masterpiece resembling spilt milk.  Each then named their art as it appeared to them. Some were faces. Others animals, aliens or just clouds. Oh, the imaginations of a four year old!

This beloved classic picture book teaches that, with a little imagination, something ordinary could become something extraordinary.

Spilt milk.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “There’s no need to cry over spilt milk.”?

It basically means we don’t need to stress or worry over the little things in life.

No worries.
Don’t worry be happy. 🙂
Some familiar phrases, but oh so hard to put into practice sometimes when you are in the middle of the fire.

The good news is, don’t worry!  God’s got it! No matter what you’re facing, whether it’s a little spilt milk or illness, divorce, or financial upheaval. God is there! If He brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it!

Let’s all stop crying over spilt milk. What’s done is done. Let’s forgive and forget. Let’s all live each day to its fullest being the best we can be. With love and the imaginations of little children. And let tomorrow take carry of itself.

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:25-34

Love and laughter,
