Longitude Latitude

If several streams merge a river is born and a single name.  At Three Forks, MT lie the headwaters of the Missouri River.  If you follow the river north just a few miles one cannot tell the waters that once belonged to the Madison, Jefferson or Gallatin, there is just the mighty MO.  Back at the confluence, the lowest point for all three connected them; and, the synergy formed was burgeoned by each digressing point.  As each lowest point was knocked for six, the river drew additional strength and greatness.  Maybe there was at one time an intention of the three to flow a particular way, toward a particular place; but, only in overcoming their lowest points did they find their muscle.  Is our movement from good to great fully realized when we commit to overcoming our lowest points?  Socrates said: “The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing”.  Maybe it is, as the Apostle wrote:  “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.”  Whichever is the true starting point, when longitude and latitude meet, the reflection in dim light or the lowest point on your travels through life.  We cannot forget we were made to move from good to great!  Ain’t it so!
