Redneck Halloween!

Here is something I am sure you have not seen on the internet before. How can I be so sure? Because I took this photo myself-- and sadly, in my neighborhood. I drove up, complimented his rig, and asked for a photo... There was so much more, but I really did not want to push my luck. I'm pretty sure there was liquor in the solo cup.

Why Sandman?

I am not a comic book guy, but I am aware that there is a character out there by this name. That is NOT why I chose the name.

I am also not really a fan of the old do-wop songs like, "Mr Sandman." So again, that is NOT why I named my blog "Sandman."

My last name is Sanborn, and in high school the guys on the team used to call me Sandman. Now, I am in my early thirties and I am NOT THAT guy who is trying to relive my high school glory days in sports.

The verse says it all. Psalm 103:14, "For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are but dust." The "He" is God, and He remembers that we are dust because He formed the first man, Adam, from the dust of the ground.

So, the name Sandman is a play on my last name and a reminder that God is my Creator. I am merely dust and He deserves my worship; I must be humble before Him.

Why should you care? I am just telling you up front that this blog will be written from a Christian's perspective. If you disagree with me that is fine, but you were warned. Thanks for stopping by.
