A prize for the 1,000th visit!

I started this blog just over 8 months ago on April 28, 2008, and today at lunchtime, someone dropped by for the overall 1,000th visit! I don't mean the 1,000th visitor, but the 1,000th time someone arrived at "The View from Here " for a visit. In October, I gave away a prize for the 500th visit, so I want to also give away a prize to celebrate this mildly interesting occasion as well!

The prize for the 1,000th visit goes to a long-time friend and former co-worker, Dianna Symanski! And the prize is a copy of the book "Life as a Vapor" by John Piper.

As I also mentioned in October, no one had any inside information regarding how close this milestone was. I had told absolutely no one. And yet it seems rather interesting timing given that I had only just responded to Dianna's request to be her friend on Facebook (a couple hours earlier). Very soon after that, she visited my blog via my Facebook Wall and won this prize! Isn't that special?

I truly hope you enjoy the book Dianna! And if you already own it, please share it with someone!
