I knew it couldn't be too long before I resumed my blogging endeavors! Writing has become such an integral part of my life that after a week into my new adventure in Nashville, away from my blogging, I knew it was time to start blogging again. I decided to start an entirely new blog (for those of you who are new, my old blog was Contemplative in the City, about my experiences as a young Catholic in Washington, D.C.) because although I am still very much seeking a contemplative spirit, I am no longer living in a city proper. I wanted to maintain the integrity of my old blog and keep it's character focused on the city life and my experiences and musings while I was living in the city. I will certainly keep it up and running for archival uses, so if you ever want to read any of the old posts you will be able to.
I decided to call this blog "Intimations of Grace", because I feel like much of my spiritual journey is led by my desire to find God in His simple manifestations of everyday life. I know that the more I become attuned to His still, small voice, the more I will become aware of His loving presence in my life, the lives of others, and the world around us. Many of the saints, particularly St. Terese of Lisieux, have taught us that this way of following God in the little things is the key to holiness.
Of course, a sub-theme of this blog will also feature some of my adventures in Nashville and the joy, excitement, and challenges that come with living in a new place.
Thanks for stopping by, and for joining with me in a new chapter of my life via the blogsphere!
