Happy New Year! I thought you should know that The Emancipation Proclamation is 150 Years Old today. On January 1st, 1863, The Emancipation Proclamation was signed. It offered freedom for slaves and led the way to total abolition of slavery in the United States. The 13th Amendment, passed on December 6th, 1865, finally abolished slavery. There are images from that period for your perusal on theroot.com. As we close the door on 2012 and welcome 2013, may our New Year be filled with peace, abundant blessings, love and bliss. Thank You for stopping by… More below!

  • Elizabeth, I love the blessings you send. I’ll copy them and hold them close to my heart for this year. My first day I think was very auspicious. It’s been bucketing it down with rain and high winds and, suddenly, clear blue sky over Oxfordshire, still whispering wind, lovely relaxed walk down to the village. People out walking, pushbikes, on horses, all saying hello, good morning, happy New Year. Lovely day and lovely things to come this year. Much love and happiness to you dear Elizabeth, thank you so much for stopping by my blog. 🙂

    • TY Veronica and sending you blessings for same… 🙂

  • Thank you so much for the 12 gifts, dear Eliz! T.S. Eliot’s quote is perfect. Beautiful post for opening the new year!

  • Thank you for the blessings – I’m sending them back at ya, since their source is limitless! On the first day of the new year, I had brunch with dear friends on a cozy glassed-in porch overlooking a bay. Our brunch stretched lazily into the afternoon. At 4pm, I set out for the beach to listen and breathe and meditate on the ocean until dark. Perfection.

  • Eliz, I love that you give us a plan for the whole year. I also like the encouragement in the beginning of the post. Here’s to a 2013 full of everything that you mentioned above.

    • Yes and Yes to that Kozo! Let’ have an amazing, peace-filled year! 🙂

    I clicked ‘pray’ and found these beautiful prayers for the New Year. T.Y. for the link!

    I love your blog about the New Year.. It made my day.

    Peter and I had a good-feel-day on Monday, 31st December, in Sydney
    For the evening we were back home celebrating with bubbly wine and some special cake, watching the Sydney Fireworks on TV.at midnight. On New Year’s Day we watched the New Year’s Concert live from Vienna. Marvelous program!.We thought this was a good beginning of the New Year.

    Wishing you all the Best for 2013, dear Eliz. Thank you for blogging. I am looking forward to more of your blogs.

    Love, Uta

    • TY Uta and I’m thrilled for you and Peter… Sending you hugs and love. Glad you clicked on “Pray” above and saw the beautiful prayers… when I read them I had to share the link as they are all precious. TY! 🙂

  • What a lovely new year’s post…. I can’t decide which of your gifts to use first … it feels as though I’m choosing a chocolate in an assorted box.
