Please Pray for Meredith Emerson!

(UPDATE: Monday, January 7, 2008, 9:45pm. I just read that authorities have found the body Meredith Emerson. My prayers go out to her family and friends - you may send a note to her family here.)

(I apologize to those who read both my blogs, this is a repeat from my other blog, but I think it is very important and also relevant, thanks!)

I've been watching this story ever since New Years day - Meredith Emerson, 24, and her dog Ella have been missing since then when they went out for a hike on an Appalachian connector trail in Georgia -
link to the story, link to the site:

This morning's news on the story wasn't very positive, but I still wish to ask for you all to pray for a miracle that she might be found alive! Please keep the searchers and her family in your prayers as well.

I immediately took notice of this story since it reminded me of an encounter I had 2 or 3 years ago with a strange man at one of my favorite recreation spots, Landrus, PA (link to post about it). Since this occurred, I am truly afraid to go enjoy Landrus alone and I have a hard time going outdoors by myself without some kind of weapon or pepper spray (pepper spray is good for bears, too!).

So, please keep these folks in your thoughts and prayers! Ladies, please be careful when you're out by yourselves or go out with a buddy!!!
