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...........

Trees of Righteousness~~~

I was weeding in my backyard this morning and came into the house and was taken aback from the activity across the street!  Our neighbors have two HUGE trees in their front yard. One has looked ever so forlorn and just no life in it. It is brown and lifeless. I never thought it was dead though.......  Then I hear in the spirit Tree of Righteousness. "Tree of Righteousness"  I look up this term in scripture and get Isaiah 61. I then hear the song on the Radio (ElijahStreams.org), and it is about a fruit tree, a violin instrumental song.  I then wait a few minutes as I am praying in tongues and then that ends. When it does, I hear "Darrell Alexander" in the spirit.  I start crying like he is in my immediate family. I only know this man as an acquaintance and he and Limitless Realms are a wonderful ministry that he ran with his wife Billie. So now as the Lord shows me what Darrell was in the spirit, Tis on my heart to dedicate this posting to this man of God and Limitless Realms ?SHALOM                   ~~ http://www.limitlessrealmsintl.org/about-us ~~
Here is Isaiah 61, with Trees of Righteousness highlighted.                                                                     


The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,  because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,                to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,             to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to  comfort all who mourn,
    and provide for those who grieve in Zion—                                            
to bestow on them a crown of beauty  instead of ashes, the oil of joy  instead of  mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.                                                        They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his  splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruin, and restore the places long devastated;        they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.                    Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.      And you will be called priests of the Lordyou will be named ministers of our God.          You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.                                     Instead of your shame  you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace               you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your  land, and everlasting joy will be yours.                                                                                                                “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.                                                                   In my faithfulness I will reward my people  and make an everlasting covenant with them.   Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the          peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”    I delight greatly in the Lord my soul rejoices in my God.  For he has clothed me with garments of salvation  and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,  as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.                            For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness  and praise spring up before all nations.
