“There are two different types of time.  Chronos time is what we live in.  It’s regular time.  It’s one minute at a time, staring down the clock until bedtime time.  It’s ten excruciating minutes in the Target line time, four screaming minutes in time-out time, two hours until Daddy gets home time. Chronos is the hard, slow-passing time we parents often live in.

Then there’s Kairos time.  Kairos is God’s time.  It’s time outside of time.  It’s metaphysical time. Kairos is those magical moments in which time stands still.  I have a few of those moments each day, and I cherish them.”
