This was fun, my score was 92% from the south. Imagine that? :) It doesn't matter what type of accent we may have as long as our words are gracious before the Lord.
Good morning, Deb! I took the test just for fun. According to it I am from the Midland states...the closest one of those to me is PA. :-) I've been told by many people that I don't speak with any accent at all...which is pretty much what the test confirmed. ;-) I so agree with you when it comes to our language as Christians. Unfortunately it seems that even in some Christian circles that hasn't been something they have focused in on yet. Your Scripture verses this morning are a good reminder about our speech! Thanks so much for sharing.
Apparently I'm from The West! ;) It's funny, I've been raised in East Tennessee as well, my father and oldest brother have very thick accents but my mother and other siblings do not, although I've been raised at rodeos, farms, ranches and board my horse at a very southern barn. :)) It's funny that I apparently haven't caught the Southern accent, although I've been told by some that my accent slips out when I'm angry, sad or excited, but I typically have a "normal" voice. :)) Thanks for sharing, it was a ton of fun!!
Gracious words are a honeycomb,sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.Proverbs 16:24
