Yes, my name really is Xenia. No, I was not born in Xenia, Ohio. I was born in Panama in Central America, where my parents were born and raised. My father, with my mother’s consent, named me Xenia, and in Panama it is pronounced “sayn-yah”. I know that you will be tempted to call me “zeen-ya”, but in my case that would be incorrect. My Xenia is pronounced “sayn-yah”.
Love In Grace is not my first experience as a blogger. For six years I ran a blog called Collar City Brownstone. I decided to close down that blog and start fresh with a new blog name. I brought over much of the content from Collar City Brownsgtone into Love In Grace, but I also left out that which no longer inspires me. I have always been blessed, and I am so grateful for that, but now I am more conscious of love and grace in action.
If you followed my old Collar City Brownstone blog and are now here with me, I am so grateful If you are new, I thank you also for joining me here on Love In Grace.
I was born in Panama, and when I was two years around the sun I immigrated to the United States with my family, New York City specifically is where I grew up. I am a proud Panamanian, but I am also a proud American and have been a naturalized citizen of the United States since I was eight years around the sun.
The most important thing to me is my spiritual journey and growth, but I won’t be writing too much about it on this blog because my path is very personal to me. I also know how volatile the subject of spirituality can be, so it is best that I mostly avoid it. There may be times that it will come up simply because my spirituality is very much a part of me. I will say that I love Jesus and He is very much a part of my life. I am also a Christian.
Reading is one of my absolute passions, and I will be sharing my thoughts on some of the books that I read. Feel free to connect with me on Goodreads.
I also love watching movies. Besides being entertaining, I often find movies to be inspiring. I love the old movies that came out of Hollywood during the 1930 – 1980’s. I do love movies such as Avatar, Dr. Strange, and Wonder Woman. These super hero movies contain many great messages for humanity.
A third passion of mine is interior decorating. I love decorating my house. I am the proud owner of a Queen Anne Victorian brownstone in Upstate New York. After many years of living in New York, I am ready to find another home in another state. I cannot yet say where I am going because that has not been reveaked to me yet, but I trust that everything will unfold in divine order and at the right time.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that I can inspire you just as many people have inspired me.
