Kairos Time

Parkway Series #157  12 x 16  acrylic   Sold

The ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos.  Chronos refers to chronological or quantitative or horizontal time.  Kairos refers to vertical time, quality time - a time in between, a moment of undetermined time in which something special happens.  Thanks, Liza, for reminding me that "God lives in kairos time, the eternal present that completely envelopes our chronos time".  My husband and I are traveling the Parkway for a few days next week to take in the beauty of the Blue Ridge in North Carolina and I will definetly leave my watch at home.
