The Wedding by Will by Will
Dec 2016

Have you made your #gratitude list? As this year is coming to an end, I started jotting down mine. The biggest ones naturally make it first on the list: Im grateful for family, for my friends, and for friends that have become family. Im grateful for my job that allows me explore my passion more deeply, to sharpen my God-given talent on a daily basis, and to go around the world to see just how great God really is. This year has been an incredibly fulfilling year for me. I am privileged to experience Gods goodness in my life and to be a witness of the great things Hes capable of doing. However, in the light of that greatness, I have found gratitude in the smaller things – the micro, the usual, the otherwise easily overlooked moments because its less flashy. I have jotted those down in my #gratitude list this year. 

The most recent entry on my list was the wedding in a winery in San Jose that I got to be a part of, the wedding of Yonas and Wendy. This particular intimate outdoor affair is memorable to me for three main reasons: 

1) this was the first time I have ever covered a wedding in the US and it was the first time I ever visited San Jose, 

2) as the sun went down and the sunset began to fade, I felt small in the midst of Gods greatness as the twinkling lights spread across the clear skies, and 

3) I learned that given the right atmosphere and a personalized touch, even an intimate gathering can be an incredible celebration. 

Okay, so maybe this wedding wasnt micro or usual. And its certainly impossible for me to overlook it. But I hope you get my point. Gratitude isnt always the big things. Sometimes its the small, intimate moments that is likely to stick in your memory for a really long time. 

Heres to an even more fulfilling year in 2017!
