I'm just joshin with you. Though now that I think about it, why is it "joshin"? That's such a stereotype, as though men can't be serious. Why not "I'm just jillin with you"? *shakes head*

There really needs to be a sarcasm font in this forum.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
