David’s going into that dark night

“David” is not the real name of the person who had died. If David had to die, didn’t he just choose the most glorious time of the year? All around us are God’s gifts: the yellows, and reds, the earthy browns of the leaves on the trees, the tomatoes just finishing, carrots, every sort of goodness…
