Five Minute Friday: Loyal

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with other writers. We are given a one-word prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is LOYAL.


I consider myself to be a loyal person. I value honesty. I've learned through tough times how important that is in relationships, whether romantic or friendship.

It's through loyalty that relationships can grow. How easy it is to give up on each other when things don't go our way.

Love requires perseverance. What happens when a spouse or friend gets sick and is no longer the person they used to be? Will I be patient with someone who has trouble remembering or has become a bit slow as they move about? Will I be loyal? I know that as I get older, my face and body have certainly changed. She ain't what she used to be, despite trying. :) Will others be loyal to me when I can't do what I used to do?

"Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you." Anonymous
"Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation." Proverbs 3:3-4 NLT 


Blessings and love,

  1. Debbie, the tie between loyal and commitment is one we can easily overlook for it is not based on our mood. As the years go by, I often ask myself the same questions - will others be committed to me? But then the more important question remains - Will I be committed to others even when it is hard to do so? May God grow a loyal spirit in us all is my prayer. Grateful to be neighbors this morning!

  2. Loyalty is such an important trait, now as much as ever. I love this quote that you share: "Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you." May it be so with me too.

  3. You appear to a be a LOYAL teacher by the side photos at top. Thank you for that if I'm guessing correctly! I appreciate your post, and the questions to ponder. Jenn, FMF
