During His ministry, as the Lord traveled to Galilee, he stopped at Jacob’s well, where he paused to drink.  There too had come a woman from Samaria, to whom Jesus spoke, saying “…whosover drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life”   (John 4:14).

The mighty Helaman taught his son’s that “…it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation… a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall” (Helaman 5:12).

Let us build our foundations upon the Savior, and envelop ourselves in the doctrine and power of the Lord.

I keep a photography blog ( – I just started it), and thought that I’d use some of the photos I take to create inspirational images which I’d use here on Ongofu.

If you think of better text, let me know and I’ll create a new version!

Otherwise, I hope you enjoy.

I just love the depth of your thoughts.
This is a wonderful blog
I like to summarize inspiring talks
into poems- And I can tell by the way you write that you write poems

Great Reservoirs of Spiritual Water

Great reservoirs of spiritual water
Have been safeguarded for us to partake
We hear the words of Heavenly Father
And feel of His love which does not forsake

He’ll nourish us from a living fountain
And give us what’s vital in constant sips
Water’s the purest in a high mountain
Where also flows what’s from the prophets lips

For profit and learning and correction
When we’re spiritually fed we will not thirst
To overcome sin and change direction
We must draw daily from the water first

When we’re saturated, there’s a cleansing
To wet our appetites, we add fasting
With increased focus, there’s more we can see
There is a joy that is everlasting

We have a keystone to our religion
And we need not dilute what’s been sent pure
The Book of Mormon can answer each deep question
We’ll dare not go beyond, to stay secure

When we’ve problems too great for human strength
A quiet hour spent in meditation
Helps us tune in with God, He’s close at length
And, we have faith without hesitation

We’ve a well of water that’s springing up
And from this high source, we can clearly see
To atone for us, Jesus filled his cup
He’ll help us repent and much cleaner be

Your poetry is wonderful. Have you published any? If not, you should. There is nothing like poetry to touch the heart.

I’m with Margret – that is beautiful. FYI, Kelly also posted one here.

Thanks for coming by and adding such tremendous value.
