Has COVID-19 damaged your friendships? These tips, points, and proverbs might help.

by Dayle McGaha

Hello again, J.T. loyal readers! My apologies for being so slow – “medical reasons”. This week’s feature will center on the old phrase, “There are two sides to everything!”

COVID-19 has done a drastic number on almost everything you can mention, especially on our schools, churches, businesses, industries and yes, even on cherished friendships. (The last one is the one that I think needs some immediate attention).

DAYLE VERB: “If you lie about the problem to keep the peace, there is a small percent chance that things will get better!”

PROVERBS 16:20: “He who heeds the word wisely will find good and whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.”

POSITIVE POINT: If you have to be persuaded to do good, or say kind words to other, you may need to think about the situation and how the other person feels. “Remember there are two side to every coin.”

FUNNY FACT: It is hard to make a come back when you haven’t been anywhere.

TID BIT: “Living on earth is expensive, but it does include trips around the sun.”

WISDOM WORDS: “If you are living on the edge, make sure you are wearing your seat belt.”

CLOSING COMMENTS: Our good friend, Jordon Green is quite a good writer. He mentioned some serious comments about human relations and lack of patience. It should also be pointed out that clerks and managers need to say “Thank You” to loyal customers. (Remember the two sides to every coin.) Remember the “Golden Rule” needs a little polishing now and then and by the way, that goes for our dedicated musician, teachers, preachers, and front-line personnel!!! “The mere words “Thanks” is not enough. You Are Our Heroes!
