It is a great biblical tradition to celebrate with Thanksgiving.
Our God is God and in a good mood. Giving thanks to him is what it is all about.
Once a year? Nah!
Every minute of every day.
When it came time for the dedication of the wall, they tracked down and brought in the Levites from all their homes in Jerusalem to carry out the dedication exuberantly: thanksgiving hymns, songs, cymbals, harps, and lutes. The singers assembled from all around Jerusalem, from the villages of the Netophathites, from Beth Gilgal, from the farms at Geba and Azmaveth—the singers had built villages for themselves all around Jerusalem.
