Introducing Nicole Ramirez
Hello my name is Nicole and it mean victory of the people, victorious one, and it origin is from Greece.
I am a photographer, author, as well as an artist. This is my first posting here in my blog, and over the next season, i will share from several different subjects so as to encourage you.  One goal I have and intend to accomplish is to share the trials, traumas, and just hard times that i have come through, that i made it this far and you can too.
So, let me start with as i said above....  My name is Nicole. I am adopted and found out as i was raised by my adoptive parents, that my name was given to my by my biological dad. I was born in the 50's, and even though now in the 21st century, when i was growing up there was not one other Nicole i even met, heard of, be it in my life or on television. I never heard the name Nicole anywhere at all.
I was raised by Mr & Mrs Stickler, my adoptive parents, and they adopted another kid, this time a boy, and now i had a brother. We moved ever so much and so i never really got established in a neighborhood, all but for once. 
My dad acquired cancer and died of it when i was 11. We moved back to Pennsylvania, so he could say goodbye to his blood family before he died. After his death we came back to California, and settled in
San Diego County, the home of my moms sister.  We settled in an rural area of the Eastern County, and we stayed in one place, and it was nice to go to one school my entire high school years.
Of course i saw some cute looking guys, and sorta would follow them around. Another guy became aware of me, especially as i started to go to sports events to take pictures. I decided to take photography, for i needed credits to graduate, and that seemed different and maybe fun.  By the end of my junior year, i started dating this guy who was watching me. He graduated that year and 2 years later i then graduated.  He then moved and got his own apartment and i invited myself to move in. Within several months a very good friend of mine, had a dream, and because of the dream, she begged me to watch Billy Graham crusade that weekend on the t.v. (i had gone to his crusades growing up, and watched his crusades lots of times).  So the weekend came and it was December of 1977. I watched the crusade and ended up curled up on the floor crying at the end when the invitation to accept Christ was given. Well that very night, i couldn't go to bed with my boyfriend, i just KNEW it was not good anymore. So i slept in the walk in closet. Within the next week, i moved home with my mom. (she now only had a one bedroom apartment, and my brother had left home).  Within several months my boyfriend whose name was Charles, well he came to invite me out on a date once again, and shared with me he was saved now.  Within 5 months i was engaged, and we got married in June 1979.
I got pregnant nearly immediately and had a son in June of 1980 and named him charles as well. I now called my husband Charlie. The next 20 years were basically 2 more kids, who were boys, and several apartments too.
In 2002 my mom died, and within a year i started looking for my birth mom.  It was (I think) in 2005 that i found my birth dad. I found him for i had always known we had the new paper article in which it was shared the details of my situation..........
Details will be given in the next posting on my blog...........

WHO ARE YOU......................???






Nicole Nanette~~~

May I?  This whole posting on April 10th, 2014 is to share, and ask you , Who are you?  Let me now introduce myself to you and I look forward to your response and even your photo as well. This image of myself is from 1975, and I graduated High School in 1976.  Now you know how old I am.  LOL.... I have always had this image, but back in grade school I was called a dog, and so many called me other names and the girls had very colorful names for me. I was an adopted child in infancy and the cousins as well had names for me, basically from their parents (aunts/uncles).  I was told from all but my mom (adopted) that I could marry my cousins, for I was really not related to them. 
Now my mom, (Mary), was a jewel, and I never let her love me, and was so UGH to her. So several years after she passed (2001), I asked a sweet older woman I knew to forgive me (she stood in for  my mom), for not letting her love me, as well as treating her so badly.
So, I have noticed many have been (on social media), been sharing graduation, childhood, wedding, photos and so I thought I would share mine. THIS TIME, though, (after a major demonic deliverance), I can see myself truer than ever! I actually love myself now! WOW!  What a breakthrough! 
I chose to blog this light bulb and its wattage for many of you. FOR SO MANY OF US, think we are either ugly, or pathetic, or blank, or, well you fill in the blank ____________.              I wonder truly how many of us could list a dozen good, beautiful attributes about themselves, and truly believe them. 
So now, WHAT adjective can you describe yourself with or see yourself with?  Come on, look at yourself in the mirror and answer this question!
Think of I Corinthians 13.........  Love is _________.                                                            One should try and fill in their name in the same manner. If not this is a wonderful goal for your season.  AND REMEMBER GOD IS LOVE!  Shalom!
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

HIS LOVE FOR US/ME...............................

Over the last few years, things have been dug up, turned over, thrown out and it "seemed" like it would never end. I was saved in 1979 and there was a definite shift in my life that night. After I found my birth dad, though I was looking for my birth mom, I started having this "things" which i titled "blank outs". Well since then I have been set free from several demons, dozens of curses have been broken AND more than I can fathom (as the Lord communicated to me).
December 2015 was my final deliverance and I have felt (starting in Feb. 2015) such a shift, nearly unfathomable. Well let me explain it this way: I am a photographer and with a digital camera, you have what are called pixels. My first digital camera had 1280 X 960 pixels. Then a few years later, I got a Canon Rebel and it is 3456 X 2304 pixels. So much more clarity, and you can enlarge it even bigger. THAT IS WHAT I FEEL LIKE. More of me can feel what IS. Whether it is love or hate. So now when I feel the Lord's love I almost fall on the ground. When I feel, and I do more than discern the enemy/evil spirits, that is gross. UGH   But each time the attacks are less and less strong, and the Love is greater. I share all of this for the little episode of the Lord today....................
I had a bit of a hard time last night not sleeping deeply, waking up 5 or more times, and today, my focus was not on the good, but stuff I shouldn't be focused on. I thought the Lord would be saddened by my actions and He has been blessing me for the last few weeks greater than I can ever remember, and even that which I do remember, it was a shallow feeling I had. Now I got up from lying down for a nap, and I heard the sound of the Hooded Oriole. I peeked out the window and saw him. For the next 20 minutes 3 Hooded Orioles, 1 hummingbird just were. Then a butterfly flew around for several minutes and it was the glorious Monarch! The Orioles just sat, then drank nectar from the Aloes, and words can never express how I FELT THE LORD SO HAPPY TO BLESS ME.  This of course happened from my bedroom window, and the aloes are less than 10 feet away. It was like being in the theater and just soaking/basking in ABBA'S LOVE!  I am attaching the images of these birds/aloes.  ENJOY!   I am more healed that I can even fathom!

Trees of Righteousness~~~

I was weeding in my backyard this morning and came into the house and was taken aback from the activity across the street!  Our neighbors have two HUGE trees in their front yard. One has looked ever so forlorn and just no life in it. It is brown and lifeless. I never thought it was dead though.......  Then I hear in the spirit Tree of Righteousness. "Tree of Righteousness"  I look up this term in scripture and get Isaiah 61. I then hear the song on the Radio (ElijahStreams.org), and it is about a fruit tree, a violin instrumental song.  I then wait a few minutes as I am praying in tongues and then that ends. When it does, I hear "Darrell Alexander" in the spirit.  I start crying like he is in my immediate family. I only know this man as an acquaintance and he and Limitless Realms are a wonderful ministry that he ran with his wife Billie. So now as the Lord shows me what Darrell was in the spirit, Tis on my heart to dedicate this posting to this man of God and Limitless Realms ?SHALOM                   ~~ http://www.limitlessrealmsintl.org/about-us ~~
Here is Isaiah 61, with Trees of Righteousness highlighted.                                                                     

ISAIAH 61


The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,  because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,                to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,             to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to  comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—                                            
to bestow on them a crown of beauty  instead of ashes, the oil of joy  instead of  mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.                                                        They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his  splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruin, and restore the places long devastated;        they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.                    Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.      And you will be called priests of the Lordyou will be named ministers of our God.          You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.                                     Instead of your shame  you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace               you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your  land, and everlasting joy will be yours.                                                                                                                “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.                                                                   In my faithfulness I will reward my people  and make an everlasting covenant with them.   Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the          peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”    I delight greatly in the Lord my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation  and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,  as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.                            For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness  and praise spring up before all nations.

It is dead I repeat the gopher IS DEAD

So IF you know me, you know that I have been delivered of many a demon including a couple of deaf and dumb even.  I was saved in 1977 and well after learning about all the witchcraft/curses/trauma that was done to me from the womb on, GOD is realer than ever, and I am still amazed I am alive!  He chose for me a most wonderful man for my glorious husband too! I had my last deliverance in December and that “thing” just has not wanted to let go, though I am and have been free. So this last 2 weeks, i started DECREEING that those “blank outs” were finished/over.  Each time I would get hit, i went into speaking in tongues for victory. For the evil would oppress my brain, and my memory was challenged. Today I went to water the poppies in the front yard (heirloom poppies), and though I usually use the rain water saved, I chose to use the hose and I just started pulling it and it got all kinked and twisted up. When i finally got the hose to the poppies, I looked and there was a gopher that was tangled up in the hose. I got it loose and then thought, to get it off our land. I kicked it out into the street and discern it MUST be killed. I do not want to do that…. but then i see it hiss (sorta), and show its teeth, over a minute or so.   I get a rock and don’t look and drop the rock and then look.  UGH!!!!  I saw blood and ^@!)~~#(.                                                                   I start declaring the evil spirit is dead/ the gopher (evil) is dead and now there is such a peace and tranquility from that spiritual adventure.  So, don’t remain unaware, for many times GOD will be showing you something spiritual from something you are experiencing in the physical world.  REALLY!

PSALM 100 Sit at My Right Hand ~~~ A Psalm of David.

1. The Lord says to my Lord: Sit at My right hand,

until I make your enemies your footstool.”
2.  The Lord sends forth from Zion, your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your enemies!
3. Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power,
in holy garments; from the womb of the morning,
the dew of your youth will be yours.
4. The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,
“You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”
5.  The Lord is at your right hand; He will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
6.  He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses;
He will shatter chiefs over the wide earth.
7.  He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore He will lift up his head.
