Lady Bird Johnson – 12 July 2007

Lady Bird Johnson, the widow of President Lyndon B. Johnson, has died in Austin, Texas at age 94. Any time I hear her name I think of the wonderful work she did in trying to beautify American cities by having flowers and trees planted.

Mrs. Johnson, who was first lady in the White House from 1963 until 1969, once said, “Ugliness is so grim. A little beauty, something that is lovely, I think, can help create harmony which will lessen tensions.”

Founder of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, she will always be remembered for trying to make the United States more beautiful.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
