Beauty For the Heart™For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Psalm 117:2

Truth: Psalm 117:2 is a short but powerful verse that reminds us of God’s great love and faithfulness. The psalmist begins by declaring that God’s love is “great toward us.”

The second part of the verse speaks of God’s faithfulness. This faithfulness is not just a promise that God will keep his word, but a covenant that he will never abandon us. It is a faithfulness that is “eternal,” lasting for all time.

These two truths, God’s great love and his eternal faithfulness, are the foundation of our hope. When we feel lost or alone, we can remember that God loves us and will never leave us. When we face challenges, we can trust that God is faithful to his promises and will work all things for our good (Romans 8:28).

Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!

  1. Love this challenge! I have a black satin skirt from Banana Republic so this gave me some great ideas! I can also create the other looks from my closet with pieces I have!
    I would love to see more posts like these 🙌🏻

  2. Cyndi,

    I love this! I’m so trying this with my clothes. It’ll be interesting to see what I can come up with?!
    I love BFTH as well. Thank you! Happy Leap Day!

  3. Today is my youngest son’s birthday! He is 8 (32) today. We have had so much fun with his birthday over the years.

  4. Wow! I love this post, Cyndi. You of course look fabulous in every one but what fun it is to see all these different options. I want to go try it myself.

    Thanks so much for you all you do!

  5. Cyndi, you are so adorable in all the outfits. I am a size 4 (barely) and you look so much better than I would. Do we have to tuck in all the shirts?

  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea! I’ve been trying to find pieces to make a capsule wardrobe. I’m a terrible shopper and not good at finding pieces.
    Thank you for the wonderful info!!

    1. Oh gosh no! It would be hard for me to share fresh content if all I wore were these 9 pieces. But I will wear these and use these ideas to change them up.

  7. This is amazing! .We definitely need more posts of 333. All I need are the shoes. I’ll be shopping for them soon.

    Thank you so much for creating this post. 💕

  8. Great insight and good ideas for my upcoming trip to Italy & Greece, when I truly need to pack a capsule wardrobe. Thank you so much & Happy Leap Day to everyone!

    1. Wow Cyndi, what a fun post, and a lot of work for you! I will definitely be saving this one for future inspiration and may try my own 333 Challenge 😊
      Love your blog!!

  9. Love this post. I have most of these pieces and see new ways to style them. And love me a $15 scarf! I’m 73 and and I can still get great ideas from you!

  10. Thanks for this post! I have the same striped cardigan (lady jacket) and I love seeing how many outfits I could make with it! Adding it to my jeans and black tee right now!

  11. Hi Cyndi! Great post! Question though…the chambray shirt defaults to a different color than the one you are wearing. Which color is the shirt in your post? Thank you!

  12. I have been quietly following you for years. This is my favorite post you have done. Hope you will do some more 333 challenge posts.

    1. I agree with so many others. This post is the greatest and I love all your posts. Thanks so much and I would love to see more 333 as well. Thanks for what you do and share with us.

    2. Cyndi, you just knocked it out of the ballpark with this 333 challenge 😍🙌🏼🙌🏼
      You look Amazing in All of these photo shoots 😍
      Thank you for all the hard work and Fabulous ideas ♥️
      Great Leap Day 😇
      Blessings

  13. Cyndi,
    Love this! Please keep this going into the new year.
    Thank you for all that you do and share with us!

  14. Cute outfits. Thanks for the inspiration to do this with what I have. For me I will trade the skirt for a wide leg pant.

  15. Love, love, love this post Cyndi!
    As always, you look amazing! I am going to go through my closet and try this. Thanks for all you do!

  16. Wow you look amazing in all the outfits! And it doesn’t even feel that you only use 3 of each? I think I need less clothes and create what you’ve done here! Beautiful!

  17. This is brilliant for travel! Add a jacket and fancy dinner top and you have all you need for a 10 day tour of the UK and can roll it all in a carry on!

  18. Nice job! I love this challenge and I am inspired to try it in my closet now. I would love to see more posts like this!

    1. I agree, this is a fabulous post, would love a post similar to vacation outfits to help pack lighter and smarter 🙂

  19. Fun post. You did great. I just got the itty bitty bootcut jeans in the mail this week. Love the fit but I’m so use to wearing light wash I don’t really know what to wear with the dark denim these days. Is it coming back in? I don’t really care for it with black. I’ll have to play around with them. The fit is too good to return. lol

  20. Cyndi,
    I feel like it’s only fair to give credit to Courtney Carver, well known minimalist, for her Project 333, which she published and has written and talked about for several years.

  21. Love this! I love knowing multiple ways to wear items I purchase or may already have in my closet. Thank you!

  22. Cyndi- thank you for actually showing (modeling ) the outfits- you look great in all of them – it also helps me to see them on someone!

  23. Such a thoughtful post! This has helped me take a better look in my closet! As someone said, this is great to think about when packing for a trip!
    Thanks!
