Demo #7 – “The One” (Message Song)

Posted by on Jun 27, 2007

My writing journeys have intersected a few times with The Message Bible translation, and it’s been a fun combination!

This fall was RAGING at full flood…the thunder of it was booming…it was a jaw-dropping site. This is just one of the thousands of ways God likes to show off!
