Open your mouth for the mute,
For the rights of all who are destitute.
Open your mouth, judge righteously
Defend the rights of the poor and needy.
When do I open my mouth?
What do I say?
How do I say it?
Why do I say it?
What if I couldn’t:
What if I could only speak
To help give others a platform to speak
To defend the rights of the poor and needy
What if I could only be a voice
For the mute
For the rights of all who are destitute
What if I could only open my mouth for whatever is
What if I could only
What if this past week's words were
filtered through these rules?
What would be left?
Would I have made a sound?

Do you have other siblings? If so, do you have any birth order traits?
I am the oldest. I have a younger brother and sister. I was an only child until I was about 3 and then got a brother and sister within 18 months. Let’s just say that I struggled sharing attention (cue me jumping into every photo and video…) Also, the feedback my parents received from my siblings after the first time I babysat was “She’s too bossy.” To which I respond, “It was my responsibility to keep you alive!" So yes, I’d say birth order traits are fairly strong.
2. What is a phrase or word you always say?
So this is really silly, but I often find myself saying “oopsie daisy,” even among adults. I think it comes from working with kids so much and having to have a kid-appropriate expression ready. It seems to have permeated all areas of my life.
3. What is one question you want to ask God?
So there are so many! But a silly one I would ask is about teeth.
He made the baby teeth to fall out, but the adult teeth never grow back in straight! What is up with that?!
