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...........

WOW is all I can say!!!!

Ever so much is surfacing for me, stuff I have waited years/seeming like an eternity though.  This season though I am battling an infection that just won't give up. I rarely get sick AND when I do, it is usually female in its orientation. Of course that is because so much was done to me as an infant. (before 6 months of age).  It amazes me that I was saved when I was living in sin with my boyfriend (now my husband), and while watching Billy Graham in 1977.  I was changed instantly in many areas. That night I slept in the closet (walk in), for I knew it was sin to sleep with Charles. Left him, and he found me/got saved within 6 months. Yeah, he "pursued" his love............. "ME" and that has been a HUGE part of my breakthrough is feeling/accepting LOVE:  I Corinthians 13 LOVE!  Read it and you will realize that there are times we are NOT loving.
God has been showing me the #7 a lot as well, and little girls. So I am discerning a lot of HIS love for me as a child too, and even then not accepting it. A time of healing AND deliverance in JESUS NAME!  Photo taken in 1975.

Just sharing my "MY SPACE" Page~~

7 White Pelicans~~~

Those who know me, know I like/love creation  birds/bugs etc.  Of course I don't idolize them, I keep them at a good preference in my life. I can nearly take most anything in my day/agenda and see the spiritual significance of it.  This weekend I was weeding the front yard (in a dream/ front yard means present time), so I am weeding, and I look up.  I see some birds, but they seemed different, I kept looking, and then got my binoculars. I noticed of course they were no longer there :(   ~~  I just kept searching the skies, and after about a minute I FOUND them. They were now a little past our neighborhood towards the west. I counted them and there were 7. 7 is nearly always interpreted "complete"  Pelicans spiritually can stand for the apostolic/apostle and so I have been declaring that much has come to an end (good), and since they were flying west, this time is about over too!    Also twice in the last 24 hours, 7 year old little girls have been pointed out to me. The  first one wanted to dance and do flags with me. Then was on Facebook and an acquaintance/woman of God, posted her little daughters photography.  I got all teary eyed, to see such sweetness. It made me remember that I never; I mean NEVER wanted little girls.  So guess what?  I have all boys/ men now. Ok; back to the white pelicans: white is nearly always clean. I am guessing that I am clean, but going through INTENSE healing now!  Well emotions I never thought I had, are truly surfacing.  So there it is for ALL to see...........  OH!  This photography "isn't" mine.  Is most usually IS, so I wanted to give credit to the photographer, but there was none offered. Have a wonderful day! Oh, and you can keep me in prayer too! For a total and complete healing!  Shalom

Time to face facts~~~~~~~~~~

Good day to you!!  I know "you" don't have "any" stubborn areas that need some attention~~~   
OH MY GOSH!  I started some deliverance/healing appointments last week and it went ever so well. I learned some good stuff and also could see I am/was too hard on myself.  The weekend came and that was some hard warfare (for me), for I couldn't sleep and so didn't get much of it. FOR ME,
that is a weak spot. So the weekend progressed, and Saturday afternoon, I felt strength come over me, and was just refreshed. Thank You, Lord. After the sun set, well I was getting ready for bed, and all of a sudden, I was soooooooooo, weak and tired.  I crawled under the covers, and hubby came in and cause it was only a wittle after seven pm, well there were some colorful comments.    I remember though (after he left the room), that I actually LET GO of "something" , some fear that I have always had pertaining to sleep. It was as if I melted into the sheets/bed.  I awoke , fell back asleep several times that night and even this season.  Sunday came and I turned on church, (since I don't drive),
and watched http://www.gloryofzion.org/  
I loved it, and yes I did worship.  Chuck Pierce then was the teacher this week and now for the next few weeks is going to focus on teaching about curses/demons and which do you have .......................
Well, I have watched it over a couple of times and will watch it several times more before the week
is over.  I also have been battling an infection, a stubborn infection that won't budge since September 2013.  I went online and learned many a woman have had the same infection, and some for years! 
So as I have been discerning greater, and rising to a new level, well a responsibility is with that new level.  So I HUMBLY/EMBARRASSED EVEN........   deep breath/  share that what I realized is that I nearly always want the short way, microwave, easier, less painful etc way to do things.  I know if
I reach out and touch the Lord I can/will be healed, but so often, I end up having to take the LONG way, doctors have told me, they have never seen situations I have been in with infirmity. Today I get of the LORD, it's time to fast, Fast, FAST.   I freak out, for I like my coffee, sweets etc      
I did quit soda some months ago, but as I look back, I have gradually added sugar to a lot of places.   THEN I felt an angry spirit rise up in me, self pity even  OH MY GOSH!   It has been a few hours, and I have gotten a little better, but I pray that SOMEDAY I can have that cup of coffee again.
 MY gosh, the good point here,  IS the fact, that I do discern the LORD, and hope I make wise choices.  Many of us are going to go through some deep purging, and it's time to face the truth...............  Help me LORD!!! I declare I/we are going to go through this deep purging
and deep healing too!  We shall face fears, and they no longer will take up residence.    
Have a wonderful week and I am looking for new subscriber!
Shalom~~  Nicole Nanette
