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...........

Terminology~~~~

Ever have a problem searching for the correct word to use? You just can't get a handle or noose around it. You know it is out there, but to grab hold of it seems impossible. Or how about the opposite?  Where a word comes into your brain and you don't know why! Well............................     Maybe it is the Holy Spirit sharing a new term to grasp hold of!  No two words are identical in meaning and maybe it is time to get the dictionary out.......................
Let me use these two examples that seem to be the same.   BUG/INSECT
It seems to me that these words are interchangeable and so i looked them up and here we go............
Bug.......................   an insect or other creeping or crawling invertebrate (as a spider or centipede)
Insect...............  a small animal that has six legs and a body formed of 3 part, and may have wings.  
I always thought these words were interchangeable until now. I know we all use words we don't realize are incorrect BUT ladies and gentlemen, WORDS HAVE SO MUCH POWER!!! God created by SPEAKING this planet, the universe into existence!  So let me share this now......... How many of us say this little Idiom: sick and tired.  Do you realize you are speaking out/calling into existence that you are sick and you are tired.  That is not the best to speak out over yourself.  How about saying you are well and refreshed, even if you don't feel 100%, and after a short while, you ARE well and refreshed.  Be so aware of your words, your terminology, and know you most certainly can do a word study in scripture to learn of the examples of terminology, of words , etc.  I bet you hadn't heard/known of the word idiom. This is the definition of idiom: 
id·i·om
1.a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words (e.g., rain cats and dogs, see the light ).

Just thought you would like to know that a reason you might be having problems, is because of your own idioms!
BE aware and whatsoever things are GOOD, yes think on these things, but speak them as well. Philippians 4:8. 
Shalom
