Turn Mourning Into Dancing…. See The Reason


ZD 2633


Are you engaged in a long-term challenging project, or are facing challenges that could tend you get you down? Then there is a lesson to be found in the story of flight.

It was the autumn of 1900; Wilbur and Orville Wright were living in a tent on the barren windswept sand dunes of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, about 75 miles southeast of Norfolk, Virginia and about 200 miles east of Raleigh, North Carolina. Today you can easily drive to Kitty Hawk via the concrete Wright Memorial Bridge, but the Wright brothers had to take a hazardous two day sail in a leaky old schooner from Elizabeth City on the Pasquotank River.

Once there, everything was a challenge. They constantly worried about their business and their father and sister back in Dayton, Ohio. Drinking water, food, and supplies were hard to come by. The wind repeatedly demolished their tent. But of course the wind was why they were there in the first place. Each time their primitive gliding machines were damaged, they meticulously rebuilt them.

At that time, it was positively assumed that flying was impossible. Even the Washington Post categorically declared that, “man cannot fly”. That was all there was to it. The Wright brothers were surely engaged in a fool’s errand. Traveling backwards and forwards between Kitty Hawk where they tried to fly and Dayton where their bicycle business needed attention, they struggled with failure after failure for three long years until they finally flew a heavier-than-air machine for the first time in human history on December 17th, 1903.

One can but imagine the countless disappointments, frustrations, doubts, and worries that must have plagued Orville and Wilbur year after grueling year. They were alone, neither brother having married. They didn’t even have a coach, let alone a therapist. They were mocked for their dreams and for their determination. Yet there is no record of the brothers having suffered from depression or even from periods of melancholy.


Ancient Hebrew wisdom tells us the only time God permits us the indulgence of despair and sorrow is if there is nothing at all we can do to change our circumstances. Under all other conditions, God prefers that we set about solving the problem causing the gloom.


You would think that the one time sadness would be allowed would be during mourning. Yet ancient Hebrew wisdom stresses that even then, after a short period, we should focus more on extolling the memory of the deceased than on immersing ourselves in sorrow.

The Hebrew word for ‘mourner’ AVeL is the same as the Hebrew word for ‘but’ AVaL.

אבל                            אבל
mourning            but

Even mourning has a time limit and an intensity limit. We might be in mourning, BUT the memories are good. This is the end of everything, BUT life continues. How can I continue living without that person? BUT you can. Even in the sorrow of mourning, after an appropriate interval, we are expected to reintegrate ourselves back into what is now the new normal of life.

Have you ever wondered why the God of the universe who knows all things asked Cain in Genesis 4 v 6, ‘ God said to Cain, ‘Why are you upset and why is your face so down?’

God asked why Cain was miserable because He expected Cain to do something about it. God expected Cain to look into his heart and understand why his gift was rejected. Cain should have taken the necessary steps to right his relationship with God and all would have been well.

When life seems to be challenging and you are facing the choice to feel depressed, and down then may I suggest you turn your morning into a BUT. Instead of mourning look at the things you could be dancing over!




Like so many of us, Cain was immersed in his feelings. Rather than changing himself, he disastrously struck out at his brother.

The Wright Brothers succeeded by responding differently than Cain. They reacted to each setback, not with anguish but with action. Each failure propelled them not to heartache but to exertion and effort. So whatever grand life challenge we find ourselves engaged in, our response to setback and failure should not be a retreat to passive and self-indulgent sadness. Positive action is the antidote.


Hope this helped you today!
