Inspirational essays encouraging the search for spirituality in every day life! Life at First Sight, a collection of essays from Phyllis Edgerly Ring, writer and columnist for United Press International's ReligionandSpirituality.com, divulges how to "see the spiritual" in every day moments, in every day life. Like love at first sight, "life at first sight" focuses on instant "recognition" and irresistible attraction, a sense of something mysteriously familiar, and a sense of spiritual connection. These stories show how to develop this new sense of being during daily activities, everyday interactions as well as day-to-day rendezvous' with nature. As a jumping-off point for spiritual conversation, these compositions can offer food for thought and build new relationships leading to a more spiritual life. The essays are from a variety of publications and the author's weekly UPI column, as well as new content written specially for this book.
