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...........

Get ready to receive this season............................

Many have gone through life just doing, Doing, DOING!   In real life those have honestly been taken advantage of even, ever so much.  Personally my True Emotions have been bound / bottled / even just dormant!  This season I have had so much healing / HEALING!  I know in this manner that season isn't over though in many if not most other areas, I/We are in a new season!  I share this posting for such a time as this!  I have been told for many a year about The Esther in the Old Testament was a Queen even before she realized it.  For many a year I have used the word Esther or Royalty, even Queen at times be it in verbal passwords or maybe online, maybe a secret question.  I have been drawn to that old testament book/woman for many a season.  This season I even have been poked / reminded of the Lord God..............   Most all of us have facets of who HE created us to be, who we still are not!  Let's learn who we are and be that man / woman of GOD / YESHUA!  In conclusion a dear woman of God made / created this beautiful quilt and she certainly didn't realize HOW spiritual /prophetic / timely this would be in my life.  I declare each day even I will grasp/glean/ and embrace more and more from this beautiful creation!  THANK YOU!   /   SHALOM!!!
Oh please respond/post if you see something that needs addressing too!

Let me FOCUS ON YOU OH GOD!

Psalms 129:1
From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me. I will repeat this: 
From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me!
James 5:7~
Brothers and sisters be patient as you wait for the Lord.........  Consider the farmers who patiently wait for the rains in the all and in the spring. They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen. You too, must be patient. Take courage, for the coming of the Lord/ your breakthrough is near. (italics is my addition)
