ruby

 A couple notes...the scripture reading talks of Christ, the cornerstone, a living stone precious in God's sight.  That led me to precious stones.  Then I looked up the four precious stones:  ruby, sapphire, emerald, and diamond.  In ancient China, rubies used to be buried beneath the foundations (cornerstones) of buildings.  Rubies were considered the "Lord of gems" and a ruby was placed around Aaron's neck.  The Bible also says that "wisdom is more precious than rubies." (Job).  And wisdom, sophia, is associated with logos, word, in the Gospel of John.

beautiful ruby
touches my heart
delicate chain
entwined
