It was just a few weeks ago that President Trump visited Missouri to talk about the tax cut plan that is now about to become law. While Trump’s visit was focused on discussing his plans for tax relief for families and businesses, he also made an important point about his efforts to end the war on Christmas. As President Trump has repeatedly told the American people, it’s time to put an end to the idea that it is politically incorrect to wish one another a “Merry Christmas!”

This year as the White House officially wishes the American people a “Merry Christmas” I want to do the same from my family to your family. This year as we gather together to celebrate the birth of Christ, let us take time to remember the true meaning of Christmas and to take the time to thank God for all that He has given us.

I hope this Christmas is filled with peace and joy for you and your family. I wish you safe travels if you are visiting loved ones, and wish the same for those who may be coming to stay with you. As we celebrate the greatest of holidays, please remember and keep in your thoughts and prayers those families that do not have the luxury of family and friends, a warm meal or even a warm home. Christmas is a time of giving and it’s important that we all remember that means more than presents. This is a time to give of ourselves to help those less fortunate.

My wish is for this time of year to be one filled with joy and celebration as you share your time with those who mean the most to you.

Merry Christmas!
