So there was a little more that I wanted to add to my last post, but I thought I'd save it for today - Music Monday.

Elliott's mother was his biggest fan. You'd frequently see her in the American Idol audience, cheering him on, smiling from ear to ear. Seeing her always made made my Sweet Hubby and I smile too! Mothers and sons...

He's dedicated his latest CD to her:

This album is dedicated to the loving memory of my mother Claudette Yamin...thank you for this wonderful gift of life, and helping me become the man I am today...I owe it all to you Ma! will be in our hearts and minds for all eternity; may you rest in peace!

Elliott co-wrote this song and there is no doubt who he is singing it doubt at all. If you've lost a loved one, I think you'll identify with his words.

**Please scroll down and pause my player before watching video**

Yes...we will see them again. Someday. Just like the song more crying, no more dying. Someday. Provided we know Him. Belong to Him. Then we can rest assured of that sweet someday...

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21: 4 NIV

That is a beautiful song - it must have really spoken to you.

He looks terrific on that album cover - so many changes in his physical being!

Yes, and on that day, although I often share the same desire to go to a place where no one knows my name, it'll be a place where I think we will all know each other's names and be happy for that fact.

But for now there is only one Name we can wish everyone knew and it is our great hope that He knows our name.

Hey Gigi,

I find great comfort in that verse from Revelation. He is coming back and His Kingdom will never end...
