What give you goosebumps - what I often call "chills"? What makes you shiver? For me, it's a number of things, but not the typical scary movie kind of shivers/chills/goosebumps.
First, there is that kiss my husband gives me on a certain spot on my neck. That is my weakness. It never fails to produce goosebumps all along my arms and legs. It is the sexiest thing I have ever eperienced. It's not a wet, mushy kiss or a firm, solid kiss. As baby bear would say, it's just right. But it is the most reliable way to give me chills.
Sometimes something I read gives me chills, often something that might seem inconsequential to someone else. For example, I offer the following words: "The dedication of this book is split seven ways: to Neil, to Jessica, to David, to Kenzie, to Di, to Anne, and to You, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end." This is the dedication page of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and I am one of those who have been with Harry since the beginning until the end. I don't know exactly why, but J. K. Rowling's dedication gave me goosebumps.
Sometimes I get chills when singing a song at church such as "How Great is Our God" or "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High." When I feel the spirit moving me in worship, and I realize how much of a treasure our lives are because of God's bountiful blessings, and I am praising His name, I get goosebumps.
There are some movies that give me the shivers. One of them is "Pay it Forward," particularly at the end when everyone is singing and holding candles gathered in front of Arlene's house. The magic of that movie, the reason it produces goosebumps, is the way everything comes full circle in the movie. A good deed done beforehand sparks other good deeds across the country. Now THAT is awesome!
Of course, I get goosebumps any time my children show me natural affection out of the blue. They can be so sweet, and they can sense when we're hurting and need that extra hug, even if we give no outward sign of sadness. They know. And that gives me chills!
