Welcome to the March 22, 2011 edition of Lovely Words. There is so much going on in our world right now we could all use a few lovely words. Please, don’t forget to pray for and donate to the people in Japan. I had the amazing opportunity to spend a few weeks in Japan and I have great respect for the people and their culture. It really is a small world and the internet makes us all neighbors. Readers, thank you so very much for your support while LW was on hiatus. LW is returning as a monthly ezine and WAASA will resume regular posting May 16, 2011.
