Business Brunch Babes Spreads Thanksgiving Cheer with Mothers in Action

bb5LOS ANGELES, CA- This past Thanksgiving, Business Brunch Babes joined Mothers in Action in its annual Thanksgiving initiative to feed the elderly. Taking place at Ward Villa Senior Complex in Los Angeles, neighborhood volunteers and organizations selflessly took time out of their holiday schedule to ensure that someone else’s Thanksgiving was filled will lots of food and love.

Mothers in Action’s 21st Annual Thanksgiving Day senior feed garnered volunteers like Los Angeles City Councilmember, District 8, Marqueece Harris-Dawson; Los Angeles City Councilmember, District 9, Curren D. Price; Calif. 59th District Assemblymember, Reggie Jones-Sawyer; Bank of America; Girl Scout Troop 1565; Vice President of the Inglewood School Board, Dr. Charliss McGhee; Delta Sigma Theta, Inc.; Business Brunch Babes; Jazzed Realty; Underground PR; Los Angeles Police Department; Doris Cares. A host of other individuals and organizations not only donated time, but also donated turkeys and additional items to make this initiative a success.

Volunteers worked hard to prepare food, serve dinner to the residents of Ward Villa Senior Complex and pack meals in “to go” boxes to deliver to the sick and shut-in throughout Los Angeles and surrounding areas. As a result, Mothers in Action, along with its volunteers, served over one thousand senior citizens in Los Angeles County.



Can You Say U-C-L-A!

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- On Saturday, November 26, Coaches White and Mercado took a group of students to the UCLA campus in Westwood, California.  Despite the rain, students had the opportunity to tour the university in order to get a taste of what college life is like.  No visit to UCLA would be complete, though, without catching a Bruins vs. USC women’s volleyball game, which was most certainly the highlight of the trip!

“Oh That Men Would Give Thanks to the Lord for His Goodness!”

To whom can we say we owe all that we are, all that we will ever be, all that we have and all that we will ever have? Nobody but Jesus!

We live our lives moment by moment. Those moments turn into days, weeks, months and years. We are blessed 1000 times over each and every moment of each and every day. The blessings of God surround us continuously. Underserving but God is merciful! One More Handful of Meal [1 Kings 17:8-16]. One More Blessing [Genesis 32:24] One More Chance at Canaan’s Land [Joshua 14:6-13] One More Chance at Salvation [Luke 23:39-43] One More Chance! One More Chance! I tell you “It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord…” [Psalm 92:1]

Let us be thankful for all the things God give us. Let us praise Him for our health, our families, and so on. Let us not take them for granted. For when all the physical blessings have faded and we can find no reason for praise in them, let us thank the Lord that there are some things that will never change! Understanding that it is in these things that we have an unchanging reason for eternal thanksgiving!

I encourage you to take time this week to give Thanksgiving to God for the multitude of blessings He has given you. Take time every day to be thankful. And no matter where you are in life, you have something that you can thank God for each and every day of your life. I tell you, “A Christian Thanksgiving is not just a day, but a way of life.”

Let us Pray: Father God, maker of the heavens and the earth, giver and sustainer of life, to you we offer praise and adoration. With hearts full of Thanksgiving we honor you. Lord, let us not take the life you’ve given us for granted. We thank you for the blessing of family and friends and for the loving care which surrounds us on every side. We are truly thankful that you have given us your Son Jesus, who died on the cross for our sins that we might have eternal life. Through Jesus Christ our King, we continually offer a sacrifice of praise — the fruit of our lips giving thanks. Amen.

From all of us here at Westside Story Newspaper, may God continue to bestow His blessings upon you and your family.

Happy Thanksgiving!
