My 97 7.3 is having a hard time starting, even during the summer like today. It will start just fine all day, but the first time I try to start it in the morning. I have to cycle the key twice, and it turns over 5-6 seconds, then just belches white smoke. What is going on? I don't remember this issue when I bought it, but literally it was an overnight thing.

Sounds like glowplugs, glowplug relay, or UVCH. Or a combination.

It didn't start up bad till about the time I replaced my CPS. I'm glad you said something not super severe like glowplugs verse something worse.
