Chaos and reality

Is there anything that has stability, or are all things governed by chaos? If you think about the lifespan of a human, on the surface it is mostly stable, but it is not at all. A person can die at any moment for any reason. The seasons are on a Gregorian calendar, and that is a stable thing, but we all know that the seasons change as they will. Summer begins sometime in June, not necessarily on the 20th. The Sun grows older and larger every day, but what prevents it from going supernova tomorrow?

Is there anything that is immune to the influence of chaos, and therefore stable, or is everything influenced by chaos?

Note: And before anyone replies that chaos is stable because we know it is chaotic, I allow that it might be the only stable thing in the universe.
