Late Princess Diana’s engagement ring , in 1981 consisted of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval blue sapphire set in 18-karat white gold and was reported to have cost, £28,500 at that time. It is now conservatively estimated to be worth about £300,000.

If the foundation be destroyed what can the righteous do? Psalm 11:3

Well… maybe nothing, really but “with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

God is the Master builder and listen to what He says:-

 “O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.” Isaiah  54:11

Really? A foundation of Sapphires? I thought sapphires were for ornamental purposes only!

My Lord has promised me a foundation of sapphires.

More precious than the ring worn by the late princess laid to rest at Northamptonshire.

A foundation stronger than any fluffy quagmire.

To display my splendour that’s well attired.

And because of this, I say goodbye to affliction.

There will be no more confusion.

No more tossing; no more turning.

Not heard of again the days of fretting.

The Master Builder Himself.

Creates a Masterpiece of me.

From my foundation of Sapphires…BLING!!!
