"Or I can set a little altar, in the world or in my heart. I can stop what I am doing long enough to see where I am, who I am there with, and how awesome the place is. I can flag one more gate to heaven - one more patch of ordinary earth with ladder marks on it - where the divine traffic is heavy when I notice it and even when I do not. I can see it for once, instead of walking right past it, maybe even setting a stone or saying a blessing before I move on to wherever I am due next."
An Altar in the World, Barbara Brown Taylor

This is my beginning of the days before Easter. This marks my call back to my Savior.
Today I shall make one altar.
Blessed are the poor in spirit.
