The common name for Lotus flower is the water lily. It has the characteristic of opening in the morning and closing during the night.  The lotus flower grows in muddy waters and rises through the murky waters to bloom into a beautiful pink and white flower. It signifies strength as it moves from the dark into the light. It also symbolizes inner strength in that it shows the determination to come out of difficulties. The very delicate flowers are also used for decoration in ceremonies and events in that it fills the atmosphere with positivity and natural fragrance.

The Robinson's lives and ministry exemplifies the characteristics of the beautiful Lotus Flower, a sheer blend of beauty, determination, and courage.
