Dear Friend,

On behalf of the Babin Family, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas as we gather together today with family and friends to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

As the father of five and grandfather of sixteen, Christmas fills our household with so much joy – mixed with a little cheerful chaos of course! It is truly a special time that we cherish and look forward to every year.

The Christmas season is the time of year to be present in the moments you share with those you love. There's no doubt that we are living in an unprecedented time in our nation's history, but I pray that each of us never forget that we are all blessed to live in the greatest country on Earth – where every American will always have a voice as well as the freedoms and opportunities to achieve the American Dream.

This holiday season, as we open presents, fill our stomachs, and visit with loved ones, let us not forget the greatest gift of all – our loving Savior. Christmas always brings to mind one my favorite verses, John 3:16:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

I pray God blesses you and your family with a very Merry Christmas. It is a true honor to serve you all in the U.S. Congress.

Thank you and God bless,

Rep. Brian Babin
