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...........

THE HOLY SPIRIT~~~

It has been years since I studied scripture. For over 10 years I haven't even grazed through the pastures of Scripture recently. Late in 2013, I "knew, discerned" that is was time to get back into the Holy Word of God again.  I nibbled and that was about it. A side note is that I have been being purged of so much ugly spiritual crap, and that has been my focus ever since it started a little less than 10 years ago.  I went looking for a notebook of mine and found over half a dozen notebooks FULL of studies from Esther to Habakkuk.  I went to church yesterday and even had to have a neighbor drive me there. 
Where I attend there is a man who usually teaches/preaches and it twasn't his week to this, so our head guy  pastor/teacher taught us and taught about Holy Spirit.  He shared a lot of what I already grasped but needed refreshing.  He also shared that he was only going to share a percentage of scriptures for he wanted us to do some homework and not just sit and absorb, without doing "something" to ADD to his opening of topical teaching.
So here is what I did..............    I got home and dug out my Strong's Concordance and                     my older Thompson Chain Reference bible. I got my notebook out and started digging                                   The Holy Spirit in the bible. I started out with ~~~~~~
I Samuel 10: 6 & 10.
Chapter 10: 6        And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon thee.....              3068
Chapter 10:10       And the Spirit of God came upon him,                                   430

Ezekiel  36:27       And I will put My Spirit within you                                     7307


John 14:17     Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not,  4151                        neither knows him: but ye know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. 

Romans 8:9    But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwells in                         you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.                       4151

Zechariah 4:6   Then he answered and spake under me saying, this is the Word of the Lord unto                          Zerubbabel saying, not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord
                          of Hosts.                                                                                                               7307

Daniel 5:11       There is a man in thy kingdom in whom is the spirit of the Holy Gods...........   7308



3068:   self existent, Eternal Jehovah                                430:  of the Supreme God
4151:   a current of air/breath/blast or a breeze               
7307:   wind, breath, a sensible even violent exhalation  
7308:    corresponds to 7307: mind/spirit/wind
