Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Stay with me through the busy days and remind me that when I need comfort, solitude, wisdom, or guidance, I can always turn to you. Amen.

Then, practice these energy saving techniques at school and at home:
- Turn lights off when they are not in use. If you are leaving a room and do not plan to return for several minutes, turning off the light will save energy and money.
- Choose energy efficient light bulbs (LED are the most energy efficient, CFL or fluorescent are next on the efficiency list).
- Unplug. Even when things are turned off or charging cords are not plugged into the devices that they charge, small amounts of energy are often still being used. Unplugging cords or using power strips to disconnect from the outlet can help save energy and money.
- Use the EPA’s household carbon footprint calculator to estimate your household’s annual emissions and find ways you can cut emissions.
