Rumerating on Jumeirah


There is a place in Dubai that is called Jumeirah. It is considered the best hotel in the world. And you can bet that the price to stay over night is as extravagant as the inner suites, dining rooms, spas, and pools it holds.





Only the finest textiles and handcrafted furnitures are present inside.




And surrounded on nearly all sides is a breath-taking view of the ocean.



Anywhere you go there is beauty. Its definitely not a place I could ever afford but what an experience it would be to go and step inside! :)



But even as I look at all this splendor and beauty I remember a promise God gave to me and anyone who puts their faith in Jesus Christ, that there will be a place prepared just for us in Heaven. Jesus said that it will be more brilliant and beautiful than anything found on Earth. There will be roads of gold so pure that it will appear as clear as glass! There will be precious jewels and stones so common they'll be as numerous as sand on the beach! There will be music and loved ones and phenomenal banquets! He described Heaven as a place filled with awe and inspiration beyond anyone's imagination. I don't know about you but it sure sounds good to me. And best of all its free! :)

"Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. "In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, [there] you may be also." John 14:1-3

That looks amazing. If only I had the money to get there.

Jumeirah is definitely a fancy and creative vacation getaway. But according to their website, having lots of money to spend is a must.

*sigh* Oh well. Maybe in the next life. :)

It is isn't it? I think the whole building really looks like a sail on a boat. ( At least that's what its builders wanted it to look like.)
