    Genesis 8:20-21 Noah build the Altar unto the Lord,and took of every clean beast,every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings,on the altar. 21.And the Lord smelled a sweet Savor and the Lord said in his heart,I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake for the Imagination of man's heart is evil from youth neither will I again smite any more every thing, as I have done. God saw man has a heart and given him a beautiful savor he made just for God. God saw that man has a love for him and honored God, and gave it up to God. God has compassion of his people and of humanity. I thank you God! For loving us So much and given us a chances to get it right and lift us so we can live for him. Glory to God.

    It's interesting that Noah sent first a raven - then a dove - twice. Nor does it say what became of the raven ... ? BUT - there is NO WAY I will 'speculate on the raven; I don't to be a source of confusion to someone.
