Glory Bumps

Glory Bumps

witness a scary scene

or something terribly mean

on your arms, hairs stand upright

goose bumps appear on site

should have worn that jacket

teeth begin to clatter -- what a racket

hairs on the arms stand at attention

goose bumps -- did I mention

another point of view

when these bumps appear on you

as you begin to actively listen

you may see a teardrop glisten

revelation from God as the story is told

glory bumps rise up – not from fear or cold

these bumps on our arms appear

someone is a witness – Jesus is near

surely to goodness – it must be a sign

when glory bumps appear on your arms and mine

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
