My personal thoughts of the Vaal Dam is similar to being in "Heaven". You are in a total state of calm and appreciation on how fortunate we are to have the Vaal Dam which does wonders to our soul. I personally find the Vaal Dam to be a place of solace and also a place that rejuvenates my mind.
It's there, at the Vaal Dam while holding my Husband's hand on his 49th birthday (24 March 2013) that I realised what an awesome God we serve, who created the sunrise. The Vaal Dam will always remain my retreat and my place of self healing.
