JIM BIBI's Hideaway

The last time i visited Bibi's Hideaway, Jim was still alive. We had lively fellowship and sharing of our personal faith in CHRIST...
As i walked around Jim's garden property, i saw his personal loving touch everywhere.

Flappy -- aged pet...

Bountiful windfall...

My favorite juice - fresh bu right off the tree...

Backyard harvest...

A monkey's favorite snack -- when ripe...

A splash of red ginger...

Also known as ostrich plume -- Alpinia Purpurata...

The pomelo tree just behind the main house -- ever fruitful...

If you like sour --- this will do!

White poinsettia blooms...

Coffee beans to make your favorite java brew...

Jim's son Pat -- tending his young 'uns with TLC...

A curtain of passion fruits near the kitchen area -- and many places elsewhere around Jim's Hideaway garden property...

James and Elizabeth Bibi -- hard work, joy in the LORD and Bibi's Hideaway -- their legacy to their children and their children's children... 

Bibi's Hideaway sign -- refurbished by rLn...

My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body.
Guard your heart above all else,
for it determines the course of your life.
Avoid all perverse talk;
stay away from corrupt speech.
Look straight ahead,
and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet;
stay on the safe path.
Don’t get sidetracked;
keep your feet from following evil.
(Proverbs 4:20-27, NLT)

 You formed my inward parts;  You covered me in my mother’s womb.I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O GOD! 
How great is the sum of them!
(Psalm 139:13-17)
Children are a gift from the  LORDthey are a reward from him.
(Psalm 127:3, NLT)
