Prayer Deprivation

07-23-2017David Lins

As the parent of a newborn, sleep becomes a treasured commodity. You might get a good night’s sleep one night and you might only get two hours the following night. Even if you get six hours of shuteye, it might come in increments of 100 minutes between adventures involving crying and toxic diapers.

Do not misunderstand me. I am blessed beyond description and love every second of fatherhood. ...but sleep deprivation can manifest itself in some pretty interesting ways…
