A friend of mine recently wrote that she didn’t have anything on her schedule this week, an empty schedule you might say. She said that we sometimes see an empty week as being unproductive, but she offered a different alternative.

Having an empty schedule means having time for the most important things. Summer is here in all its Texas glory. There are times in the day when we shouldn’t go out. Maybe that is the perfect time to do the important things that build life.
