If you’re like most of us, one of the ways you get through the cold winter is by making plans for summer vacation. If you’re in the market for somewhere you’ve probably never been, this New York Times article is for you.
It tells us about the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp
& Resort in Chiang Rai, Thailand, where you can stay the night in a
transparent bubble while elephants roam nearby.
Closer to home (for Americans), the Farm Sanctuary in
Watkins Glen, NY, offers you a tiny house and the chance to mingle with some of
the eight hundred farm animals rescued from abuse and mistreatment.
Or you might choose a treehouse in the South African bush,
where you will sleep in the canopy of the Amazon, high above the Rio Negro
If you want even higher accommodations, consider Skylodge
Adventure Suites in Peru, where you will arrive either by hiking over 1,300
feet up or by zipping in on a zip line. Your room is a transparent capsule
hanging on the side of a mountain.
Underwater options exist as well, like The Manta Resort off the coast of Pemba near Zanzibar, where your butler will boat out to meet you on your private underwater island.
If you’re scuba certified, you can dive down for a stay at Jules’ Undersea Lodge in Key Largo, Florida.
An even more amazing final destination
Wherever you go this summer, know that the most spectacular
vistas on earth cannot begin to compare to what is awaiting you one day in your
Scripture describes heaven as a place beyond description:
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart imagined, what God has
prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9).
Knowing that your home with God is more astounding than your
finite mind can imagine may not help with the cold of February. But it does
encourage us to live for the place where we will live forever.
Whatever it costs us to be faithful to Jesus today will be
more than repaid by Jesus one…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
