What is going on with PURPLE? It started when Oswald Chambers compared forgiveness to the fragrance emitted by a violet when it is crushed under someone’s foot. Well, violets are purple. So this fragrance of forgiveness is the color of royalty -- purple, which would be God.
Then I went to a someone’s house to pick up some papers, and his wife invited me in to see her back patio, because, she said, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, purple violets had been springing up everywhere -- even in between the flagstones. I told her about the fragrance thing and the purple thing and she told me that her mother recently died. We talked about whether they might have been sent from heaven.
Last but not least, I went into the office, and guess what? Each staff member’s files were going to be color-coded from then on. And guess what color was handed to me? PURPLE!
