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...........

Breakthroughs/ Dreams

I am not sure where to start here, without sharing nearly a lifetime of information............  
So as i proceed, IF you have any questions, PLEASE ask, for we:  be it humans, or maybe the church or ? THINK we understand a subject/situation but then we get added information and learn that which we didn't know before.  This is a real example I will share.......... ready?
I have had somethings that have been with me most of my life; so it is common/familiar for and with me. I have had many healing's and breakthroughs but within a few weeks, (though i am better, there is still a remnant of what was there to begin with). I have had dreams/ revelational information given to me, and in each case, yes there is wonderful healing, but one thing that has skyrocketed is what I call blank outs! So many I know get healed of be illness's/conditions and then within days/weeks, they seem to lose the healing.
This last season, my oldest son who lives here at home (he is over 30), and is in the military.  His dreams have been ever so pertinent/informational in several family members lives. He also is our first born male. (holy unto God)(Exodus 13:12; Luke 2:23).  He had a vivid dream and though I interpret dreams, and have had wonderful help from two books the Lord directed to read, by Ira Milligan.  http://servant-ministries.org/
The end result to the dream and a breakthrough that I have not been able to attain is this.............       IS this: to be delivered of all curses/demons and to do so,  you have to get 100%, freedom, and shut every spiritual door that is needed to be shut, so that they can't be able to be opened again.   So I have learned there needs to be prayer AND fasting done, AND for a specific amount of time AND way.  So many of us get temporary freedom and yes I have fasted, but as it was pointed out to me from this author; (Ira Milligan). Most people do a semi-fast, of a few days and some food. Daniels fast was 21 days long, and many a time I/we stop before our fast or even an assignment is finished. I am adopted and never realized that I not only could and did acquire that from my blood parents, but I

could and did get passed on generational stuff from my adopted parents as well. Personally I abhor waiting and have joked around, how I am a microwave person and rarely if ever a crock person. I love the quickest possible way to acquire the victory. Of course this stems from childhood as well, of being promised that which was never acquired.
I share this for nearly everyone of us, have that which we have prayed and prayed for and have not gotten yet. This season/year God is going to bring us to the place; (be it spiritual/emotional/etc); where we STILL need to have the victory we have not acquired yet. What is yours? I will get mine, "when" I start/be obedient/ and finish in God's timing, what and where HE directs me to go and do! Remember what Solomon spoke of........ To everything there is a season!  What season are you in...... I am in a season of victorious breakthrough and complete deliverance from all that has buffeted me.

A Time for Everything
      1There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven—
      2A time to give birth and a time to die;
            A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
      3A time to kill and a time to heal;
            A time to tear down and a time to build up.
      4A time to weep and a time to laugh;
            A time to mourn and a time to dance.
      5A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
            A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
      6A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
            A time to keep and a time to throw away.
      7A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
            A time to be silent and a time to speak.
      8A time to love and a time to hate;
            A time for war and a time for peace.
