The [original] Mase Place: Where my childhood dreams became realities…horseback riding, dirt bikes, ice skating rinks, ski jumps, forts, and loads pretend worlds. I will forever miss this tree fort of a home.

Four generations have made maple syrup in this shed in northern Wisconsin. Make a point to share life with those you love. 

Grandpa’s pad.
It’s legit.

The view from the tree-house at my parents house in northern Wisconsin. One fall I slept out here from October through mid-December. It is a wonderful feeling to fall asleep with a view out over the lake listening to the loons call.

Dear birch trees, blue jays and loons, I miss you daily.

As Christians we are called to be like Lucy to the world; to step out in faith through a wardrobe and open our eyes to the Kingdom of God. To defend what we’ve seen and heard, though everyone around us, even our own families, think we are liars or lunatics. To stand by the lamppost and point to the wonders and joys of the gospel, to paint a picture with our words and deeds of the glorious love of Jesus.

Every day I want to be someone’s Lucy.

Lucy and Edmund from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” by CS Lewis drawn by my beautiful friend Jacqueline Kay, whose creativity amazes me.

I love Lucy. Brave little soul full of light and life.

Happy birthday little sister. Here’s to more simpler days ahead like these we’ve already cherished.

Always thankful for this one’s love. She’s been there since birth. I’ll always be grateful.
