With its highly expressive artwork from Dorothy Allen, the 2023 installment of our Too Blessed to Be Stressed series, embodies a simpler time when family, community, and faith was the primary focus. Her illustrations capture the vibrant celebratory attitudes often found embedded in the African American church experience. Ours is a faith that rejoices in the tribulations knowing that greater things are being worked out in our hearts and our lives. Each month showcases Allen’s comical interpretations of life’s ups and downs, assuring this calendar will serve as a reminder to all that no matter what happens we can always rejoice because the Lamb sits on the Throne. As a result, all of us are Too Blessed to Be Stressed.
