Deliverance Day

Revelation 21:4(NIV)
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."
Matthew 25:21(AKJV)
His lord said to him, Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter you into the joy of your lord.
Revelation 21:11 (AKJV)
He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

It's the 68th anniversary of D-Day, but that's no longer part of your history, is it, in Heaven?   I'd like to think that D-Day for you was actually your Deliverance Day, the day you were delivered into the arms of Jesus, your Savior and heard the words, "Well done."
You finished your battle and entered into a place where there are no more wars and likely no more memories of war, because such things don't belong in Heaven.   Missing limbs and shattered minds have been restored in this place where the Great Healer and Prince of Peace reigns.  I'd love to see you and Grandpa running and skipping like calves let out of the stall.  One day I will.  Oh, Glorious Day!
This is a hymn by Doc Watson, who's now singing in Heaven's choir,  and David Holt, "Stand By Me."
