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...........

Lauryn Hills & CeCe Winans - His eye is on the sparrow


Doing my devotions one day, (before retiring)  I came across Psalm 29.  Of course most of us have read it before, even several times. But so often we only grasp stuff in the shallow end of the pool. Yesterday i read this and ended my day with this Blessed Psalm. I went to bed and the night was strange.  I won't nor need to go into detail, and then upon awakening (after several during the night), I was still burdened as I awoke and upon opening my Bible, I opened again to that very Psalm.  I pray that I grasp, soak in it, digest it, understand it and walk in this awesome Psalm. Here is it and I would so enjoy learning your nugget of the season or hour. Shalom

PSALM 29   A Psalm of David
Ascribe to the LORD, O sons of the mighty,
Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. 
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name;
Worship the LORD in Holy Array.

The voice of the LORD is upon the waters;
The God of glory thunders,
The LORD is over many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful, 
The voice of the LORD is majestic.
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars;
Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
And Sirion like a young wild ox. 
The voice of the LORD hews out flames of fire.
The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness;
The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer to calve
And strips the forest bare;
And in His temple everything says, Glory!

The Lord sat as King at the flood;
Yes, the LORD sits as King forever,
The LORD will give strength to His people;
The LORD will bless His people with peace.

I am free and flying

Many of you don't know me, and those who do,  WILL CERTAINLY probably laugh at this posting.... Ready?   Here it is......
This is going to be a long posting too.
These last few weeks, I have been overcome, saturated with the word Shalom. I know what it means, but it means more than i realized. That is number one.  Number two is I enjoy, love Glory of Zion with Chuck Pierce established in Texas, and watch it whenever I can.  This month I was more than wanting to watch the conference, but HAD to, there was something I HAD to grasp, hold on to, and not let go of. It was a wonderful, awesome conference. I did miss two of the gathering though, and GOZ, posted them the next week (free of charge).  I knew the one i was drawn to the most and watched it.  WOW!  I have always know about the feasts in the old testament, the holidays etc, but never learned much about them, let alone celebrate them. I watched Robert Heidler the teacher of those holidays, and the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) was that Saturday.  September 13-14th, sundown to sundown.  I was actually nervous on the 13th and was wondering what was going to happen.
Let me share now some history.........
1957  I was conceived in my moms womb.                   2002  Mom died    
1958  I was born and abandoned by man                      2005 Looked for birth mom, found birth dad
1960   Legally adopted                                                 2006 demonic manisfestations started at night           1969  Adoptive dad died                                              searched, Searched, SEARCHED to be delivered
1977  God saved me (salvation)                                    2008  started having blankouts in the daytime
1979  Married (now for 34 years)                                 2013  Day of Atonement (truth revealed)
1980, 82, 90  gave birth to a son                                                     I AM FREE
September 13th came and I watched the sunset, and it was a quiet evening and I was alone, no family member was here but me.  I read and just soaked in the Lord.
The sun came up and I basically just read the word, laid on my bed, and just tried to not just hear, but listen if and when the Lord was to communicate. The day ended and i actually watched the shadow on my bedroom wall increase as the sun set.  I was amazed, for the Truth that came over me that day as i repented, was over the last 6-7 years with the manifestations; they basically stopped I think in 2009.  But last October, I had one, one night.  So I assumed that I was still possessed, and the blank outs continue. They are much weaker and shorter.  So Saturday, the truth that I hadn't grasped  DAH!   Was and IS the fact, that I am FREE of any demonic spirit, and the healing is almost complete. It makes me think of so many of us, THINK ever so much worse than what actually IS.
I had a dream years ago, it was the most vividest, intense dream of my life. I was in a battle for my identity (a purse in the dream) and it was a fight, for the woman i was fighting would not let go, but once I gave a very hard yank, and HAD now my purse (identity), she melted identically like the wicked witch of the east, in wizard of oz.  Pay attention to your dreams, most of the time they are the Lord wanting to communicate with you.  So in conclusion...........I AM FREE!!I AM FREE!!! Newsboys!

Compelled By Love - Teaser Trailer

JUST THINKING........................................

My husband is doing a job and had to park in a lot where he usually does not. Now that this job has started, i guess he just may park there more often. Hmmmmm...........   Anyway let's get to the subject matter that has greatly blessed me. He was walking to his truck and saw something on the top of the cab. As he got closer, he could see movement, and as he shared the story with me on the phone (during lunch i think), he described it from a distance and it looked like a small penguin. LOL~~  He continued walking and upon getting closer could tell it was a type of  jay. Now most know i am into birds, bugs, and other creation/life.  He called me asap, and told me this, and I was ever so moved, for though this new job started, and it's a little bit further away, the LORD blessed both my husband and I with a BIRD.  I love them winged creatures, feed the songbirds with seed in the backyard, also feed the jays, with peanuts. The bird he saw was a Yellow Billed Magpie and that IS a member of the jay family. LOL....   
So though this whole posting MIGHT not seem important, for me it was a delight that my husband had a bird setting atop his truck for such a time. Now it's my turn to see a Yellow Billed Magpie (never saw them before), saw a Yellow billed magpie jay, and they are an endangered species. OH YEAH, thought you would like to know........  LOL!
