30th .



The beat

Of ages awake all 




Carry Him

Abide These Three

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. ~2 Corinthians 5:20


Nine months

In her womb

She carried Him

After an angel’s visit

Through the shadow of the Most High

She carried God’s Son


She was just a young girl in a small town

With hopes and dreams and joys

But God invited her

To take part in His redemptive plan

So she carried Him

She carried Him


Dead weight

Soaked in blood

He carried Him

After darkness shook the earth

Through the streets to his new cave tomb

He carried God’s Son


He was just a teacher in a busy city

With loves and thoughts and wants

But God invited him

To take part in His redemptive plan

So he carried Him

He carried Him


True Light

Rainbow vanilla cupcakes!

——– —

tales from a kitchen

I made cupcakes yesterday!

They may look pretty boring…. but wait until you see what’s inside!

These are my favourite cupcakes to do!

There are two techniques here. One is to make the actual vanilla cupcake. The other is to make them rainbow! Feel free to rainbow-ize any of your white-ish coloured baking in the future, or to use the vanilla recipe on its own, or to combine it as such.

The vanilla cupcake recipe is altered from this blog post. They use regular flour; I opted for gluten-free.

Here’s my version…

TO MAKE THE (gluten and dairy free!) VANILLA CUPCAKES

This made me a meagre 8 cupcakes, but they were delicious and I tend to over-fill the cupcake tray.


  • 1 1/4 cups brown rice flour and 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (regular all-purpose gluten-free flour should work fine if that’s what you have)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
