My Season: Elizabeth Williams

Happy Monday! Thanks again to ALL who participated in the blog last week!  I hope you guys enjoyed it.  Before we totally move on from the “season series,”  I thought I’d share my answers as well…

Name:  Elizabeth Williams
Age:  27
City:  Virginia Beach, VA, but come Friday, I officially transition to Charlottesville

Current Season: Not sure what to put…you know that classic Britney Spears song “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman?”  That’s kind of how I feel sometimes; too old to cling to my college days, but too young to join the ranks of Jennifer Garner in 13 Going On 30 as “Thrity, Flirty, and Thriving…”
Besides being a professional mover, my current season is a working girl and as of next Monday, wife to a full-time student.

1.  What is one thing things you can’t live without? 
Manicures, Pedicures & Mascara…I know that’s three, sorry!

2.  The current book(s) by your bedside table are…  

Also, just finished The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by The Pioneer Woman thanks to Anna Kate’s fabulous recommendation, and it’s a fun, easy read.  A classic, pure, and honest love story. 

3.  Your number one song played on iTunes is…  

You Never Let Go by David Crowder

4.  Fill in the blanks:  If I didn’t have __________, I would be _____________.  

If I didn’t have such a love and appreciation for good food, I would be sad, but skinnier. 

5.  What do you like best about your current season? 

Here’s where the selfishness shines…I love that it’s just me and Bernie.  I know it won’t always be that way, but I’m trying to savor every minute where it’s just the two of us.

6.  What is one difficulty or burden you’ve experienced/are facing in your current season?   

The uncertainty of my life is both a blessing and a curse.  I love that, with a few exceptions, we’re not really tied down to anything–no house, no kids, etc.  BUT so many times, I would love to feel settled and like the next 5-10 years are planned out.

7.  Tell us one way you’ve seen or experienced God during the past year.   

I have seen God go out of His way to so sweetly and specifically care and provide for me.

8.  What is one name of God you have come to appreciate lately?
 Provider–it kind of goes with my answer above, but I’m just blown away with how God faithfully and dearly provides for His children. 

9.  What’s one Bible verse that has been a lifeline for you recently?  

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; DWELL in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.”
Psalm 37:3 (NKJV)

10.  Where do you go to be encouraged or inspired?  

Friends, worship music, journaling, running/walking.

11.  Do you have any advice for other women who are in, or may be entering your season soon?   

Live in your “now.”  Whatever season you’re in, embrace it.  Don’t look back and don’t long to jump forward too soon.  Be present in the day and moment God has given you.
