Revisiting Holway Reservoir

Located in the hills southeast of Salina, Oklahoma, the Grand River Dam Authority’s W.R. Holway Reservoir is a bit off the beaten path. Resting high above the Grand River valley, in a place where the river never flowed, the reservoir does not always garner the attention that it’s “sister lakes” – Grand and Hudson – get from water enthusiasts. In fact, many consider Holway Reservoir one of the best kept secrets in the state.

AS THE HEBREWS LEFT EGYPT— LET GOD GO BEFORE YOU!! HE’LL MAKE A WAY!!! Exodus 13:15-22 15And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem. 16And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt. 17And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: 18But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. 19And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you. 20And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. 21And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: 22He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people. WAIT UPON THE LORD IN ALL THAT YOU DO!!! MOST OF OUR PROBLEMS ARE WE TRY TO GO BE- FORE THE LORD!! WE CAN MESS THINGS UP WHEN WE TRY TO DO THINGS OUR WAY!! LOOK TO THE LORD IN ALL THINGS!!!
