The Gift of Kairos

God’s timing is perfect. I rely on this maxim more than I know. I am constantly juggling time. Calculating how long it will take me to accomplish a task, and then arranging my tasks like little puzzle pieces throughout the day. The clock on my wall is like a stop watch that I use to measure my day, to see if I am keeping up or falling behind. Some days are more a race against time.
