Two kinds of time......

I have multiple magazines subscriptions - quilting, women's interest, cooking, and general interest. Most months I find inspiration for quilts, recipes that sound good, and other assorted ideas. But in reading the April issue of Good Housekeeping I found something to challenge me in the Editor's column. In it she talks about a conference that she went to and the subject of time. What she wrote gave me food for thought.,

The basic two types of time are Chronos - minutes, hours, days - the schedule that all of us live our lives by these days. And Kairos - event-centered, memorable time, the moments that make the deepest impression on us when we are fully living our lives.

I know for me, I have to wonder how much more should I be living by the second instead of racing the clock to live according to a schedule. None of us can walk away from all Chronos based time, but do we really look for the Kairos moments?

What do you think?

1. God's bountiful supplying of my needs
2. For the ability to quilt

This is a really thoughtful post. Thank you for making me really think about time, in both ways.
