Amelia Rodriguez Ramos, 92, of Plainview, passed away on Tuesday, January 31, 2023. I first knew of Amelia as a Pink Lady at Covenant Hospital Plainview but did not know where the 'familiar first encounter' came from until much later.
The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22
This past year I was able to be a long-term sub for Meals on Wheels. A sweet friend was in a medical crisis, and oh, the joy that filled my soul to be able to step in for a season. Praising God that she is better and back.
On my first day volunteering for this route, the first home, I met a treasure; her name was Amelia, and we instantly connected on a deep and spiritual level.
Sometimes her hands covered mine and sometimes, I held hers. We never tarried long, but in the minutes of time, the Holy Spirit was present. I needed her wisdom and God allowed me comfort and peace through Amelia's eyes, words, and the power of her touch.
Blessed are those who wash their robes so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Revelation 22:14
I find joy in knowing that the Lord is in every connection that I experience. I thrive in His presence. I am overcome with gratitude and will sing praises to him for the gift of a powerful love connection between Amelia and me. Oh, the joy that floods my soul as I invision this sweet lady in the presence of Jesus. Her robe is washed and she has the right to enter His gates. What a beautiful lady with a beautiful testimony. Thank you, God for this gift.
