“We were surprised to find such a striking result,” epidemiologist Anna Pollack from George Mason University told New Scientist. “It is equivalent to around 11 years of accelerated cellular ageing.”

Blessed be godly mothers who give up youth for the love of a child.

Blessed be godly mothers who give up self-satisfaction for the love of a child.

Blessed be godly mothers who give up their lives for the sake of Jesus Christ.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)

Amen, blessed be godly mothers who give up the beauty of this world for the sake of their children.

In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.

Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her. At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. (Luke 1:26-44)

(—Now, we might have something new to add to that list: childbirth. In the study, the team found that once they’d adjusted for things like age, ethnicity, education, smoking status, and so on, women who had given birth to at least one child had telomeres that were 4.2 percent shorter on average than those of women who had not borne children. This average meant an adjusted difference of 116 fewer base pairs in women who had given birth, which the researchers explain is equivalent to around 11 years of accelerated cellular ageing. What’s amazing is that this telomere shortening associated with childbirth is even greater than what’s previously been observed in research examining the association seen with smoking (a cost of 4.6 years of cellular ageing) and obesity (8.8 years). What’s more, in the study, the telomere shortening seemed to vary depending on how many children the women had delivered. “We found that women who had five or more children had even shorter telomeres compared to those who had none, and relatively shorter relative to those who had one, two, three or four, even,” Pollack told Newsweek.
