Bear 🐻

The momma bear jumped up but I missed it to protect her baby, my daughter got scared and rolled the window up or I would have had a great shot

The closest I’ve ever been to a black bear cub and mother and they were, more afraid of us, than we were of them. Go in this time of the year and keep focused on the most important thing and that’s keeping your relationship and heart right with the Father. Tomorrow is never promised for anyone, one thing I’ve learned in life is to do my best to always stay humble. I’ve also learned to stay focused on several goals, instead of idols if I become too addicted I have to quit and make the Father more important once again. I fight addictions just like most but until we learn to fight them all, this includes any addiction not just drugs. People can be addicted to anything they put more energy into instead of the Father. I’m not here to point fingers cause I still fight against eating and overeating certain foods with chemicals, and if you don’t believe that’s some kind of drugs that are added to make us more addicted or sick or both. I think that we all struggle with this because it involves the cross we all carry that is our flesh.

This is where the little one got scared and hugged the tree

The flesh is involved when someone is addicted to something, and they feel emotional when the thing is taken away. Pray for your family to overcome these addictions, and I will pray for you, will you pray for me? I’ve felt this way about sugar before, just as much, if not more than for a cigarette, it was because I used sugar as a crutch instead of Christ all the way through. I did fast the second two days of quitting but gave in to sugar. I can proudly say that was months ago so I’ve been cigarette free since the end of august. The Lord helped majorly, but often time like me we lean on other habits that can cause damage to our health, spiritually, physically, and mentally. Keep fighting, the devil will come at you with small addictions, to try and drag you back down, the same road. You can do this, and so can I. I plead the blood of Jesus over everyone reading these words.

This is another beautiful bear I ran across driving in the mountains


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
