Seasons Change, Fruit Remains

November 27, 2018

Along with Ray Lamontagne (give me Ray any day, come rain or shine), I’ve been listening to Corinne Bailey Rae, a homonymn with her own sound. Best known, perhaps, for Put Your Records On (and what a tune that is!), other musical gems of hers include Like A Star and, I discovered recently, Seasons Change:

Don’t you know that/ That patience is a virtue?/ Yes, it is/ And life is a waiting game/ Don’t you know that peace must be learned to you?

I love those words, ‘Don’t you know that peace must be learned to you?’ In French, apprendre (literally to apprehend) means both to learn and to teach. So you learn something to someone. Peace must be learned to us. And who better to teach us peace than the Prince of Peace?

In this ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ (John Keats, To Autumn), I am reminded of the fruit of the Spirit, where patience follows peace, and joy follows love.

Though the seasons change, Your love remains

‘To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
